At the April meeting of the Wyoming Game & Fish commissioners, the TRCP presented a $10,000 check to the Wyoming Game & Fish Department in support of the state’s Sportsmen’s Access Program. The program benefits hunters and anglers who pursue their passion in Wyoming by providing access to public wildlife on private lands.
The TRCP generated the funds through the sale of commissioner licenses, which are awarded to non-governmental organizations for fundraising purposes. The funds donated to the Wyoming Fish & Game Department by the TRCP will help the department retain current access areas and negotiate additional private lands in the program.
The remaining funds raised from permit sales will be used by the TRCP to complete its Wyoming Sportsmen Values Mapping Project. Bringing together more than 1,000 sportsmen from across Wyoming, the project aims to identify important places in the state that hunters and anglers want to see conserved.
Monies raised from the license sales fund Phase II of the mapping project, which includes the digitization of data already collected from sportsmen using GIS technology and TRCP staff sharing the resulting maps with participants. These maps will complement the crucial fish and wildlife habitat data sets already in place by Wyoming Game & Fish and land management agencies.
