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.
Hats off to firefighters from near and far and all the agencies involved with firefighting efforts in our area!

Activities associated with human activity are the number one cause of new invasive species arrivals. Recreational activities such as boating, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, ATVing, and camping can facilitate the spread of these non-native genera. Prevention is the easiest thing users of our public lands can do to maintain our native landscapes and associated flora and fauna. Follow the link to see just how many places could be impacted by these undesirable species as we travel around by tire and boot during our activities. Consider the threat from an accidental introduction of any non-native invaders be they insects, plants, or pathogens to the native ecosystem. Come Clean: take a little time to inspect and remove dirt, plants, and bugs from clothing, boots, gear, pets, and vehicles. Use weed free hay and burn local firewood. Leave Clean: Repeat step 1: take a little time to inspect and remove dirt, plants, and bugs from clothing, boots, gear, pets, and vehicles. Don't move locally identified invasive species to a new location! So get outside and enjoy everything the Greater Yellowstone Area has to offer but please take responsibility for your actions.
