As you seek recreation in the out-of-doors, how can you be sure you are permitted to be in the area you intend to visit? Wyoming’s Office of State Lands and Investments has designed a State Land Access Website Application to assist users to determine if certain State lands are, in fact, legally accessible. Sportsmen, grazing permittees, other state land lessees, and government agencies can utilize this website-based application by going to the agency’s website homepage at lands.state.wy.us under Search State Lands. No additional software or specialized computer knowledge is required to operate the system. The information contained on the maps, however, does not make reference to Wyoming State Parks, Wyoming Game and Fish Department Habitat Management or Walk-in Areas, or other state or federal management areas. Governor Matt Mead explains that too often the Board of Land Commissioners is in the position of mediating disputes between sportsmen, landowners and other state lessees after the fact. Mead says it is hoped this new service will head off some of those conflicts.
