The Wyoming Range

Resources and Links

To learn more about issues affecting the Wyoming Range or to participate in the Forest Service planning processes, there are numerous resources available online. Below are links to several useful websites that offer opportunities for further study and engagement.

  • Familiarize themselves with the Wyoming Range’s unique natural resources
  • Understand the legislative processes leading to the passage of the Wyoming Range Legacy Act
  • Engage in future public planning decisions affecting the Wyoming Range

The Legacy Act
Read subtitle C--The Wyoming Range of the Legacy Act.

State and Federal Policy Makers
To contact state and federal policy makers and express your desires for future management of the Wyoming Range and the Bridger-Teton National Forest:

To explore the campaigns that worked to bring the Wyoming Range Legacy Act to fruition:

  • Citizens Protecting the Wyoming Range - a group of local landowners, outfitters, conservation groups, business owners, and ranchers.

    “Citizens Protecting the Wyoming Range does not oppose the energy development in Sublette County, particularly when every effort is expended to mitigate its adverse environmental and socio-economic impacts. But we believe development has its limits. With so much development already happening nearby on BLM, state, and private lands in the Upper Green River Valley, it just doesn’t make sense to expand it onto the national forest of the Wyoming Range. Our ultimate goal is to have legislation introduced in Congress to permanently protect the Wyoming Range from energy development”

  • Sportsmen for the Wyoming Range – an organization of sportsmen and outdoors groups from around Wyoming, including NOLS.

    “We need the oil and gas industry in the state of Wyoming. Yet we also need a place where we can play. We think there are certain areas such as the Wyoming Range that ought to remain off limits. We support legislation that would halt oil and gas development in the Wyoming Range.”

  • The Wilderness Society
  • Wyoming Outdoor Council
  • Greater Yellowstone Coalition
  • Trout Unlimited
  • Wyoming Wildlife Federation
