Hats off to firefighters from near and far and all the agencies involved with firefighting efforts in our area!
Wildfire is part of life in Wyoming whether you live in a forested area, sagebrush or grassland. The “Living with Wildfire in Wyoming” guide was put together to provide landowners with useful information to help them reduce the fire risk to structures by implementing defensible space practices, be prepared if evacuations should occur and to address the impacts of fire if a wildfire has burnt their property.

Help protect our native habitats! Activities associated with human activity are the number one cause of new invasive species arrivals. Even recreational activities such as boating, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, ATV’s, and camping can facilitate the movement of these non-native genera. Prevention is the easiest thing users of our public recreational lands can do to maintain our native landscapes and associated flora and fauna. Follow the link to see just how easy it is to spread these undesirable species as we travel around by tire and boot during our activities. Think of the potential threat from an accidental introduction of any non-native invaders be they insects, plants, or pathogens.
