Governor Mead Forms Forest Task Force

Forest Health

Governor Matt Mead has asked a group of stakeholders to develop recommendations on how Wyoming can best improve the health of its forests. The Governor’s Task Force on Forest Health is made up of representatives of federal, state and local government, industry, conservation groups, and forest users. The general charge for the Task Force is to develop strategies, recommendations and measurable actions that the State of Wyoming in conjunction with federal and private partners can implement. Senator Ogden Driskill and Representative Jerry Paxton will be key leaders on the Task Force.  In forming the task force, Mead said he is interested in seeing a variety of Task Force recommendations, including specific recommendations related to wildfire prevention and mitigation and market innovation. Mead has asked for Task Force recommendations to be prepared by the fall of 2014.
