This year Wyomingites celebrated their first Wyoming Public Lands day! The Greater Yellowstone Coalition’s Cody Field Office curated a Wyoming Public Lands Day Event, at a unique parcel of public land commonly known as Beartooth Ranch or sometimes “the drug ranch.” The Beartooth Ranch harbors pristine wildlife habitat and access to blue-ribbon fishing.
It doesn’t take much to get me excited about rivers. Running rapids and chasing trout has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. And it’s a part that I can’t imagine losing. That’s why I’m thrilled by the opportunity to protect some of Montana’s most iconic rivers through the proposed Montana Headwaters Security Act.
Habitat degradation and fragmentation, as well as competition and hybridization with non-native trout have greatly imperiled Westslope cutthroat trout. Greater Yellowstone Coalition is committed to restoring native trout populations where possible, and ensuring both wild and native trout have clean, healthy waters and habitats.

As we all know, Wyoming is a rural state connected by extensive roads that we all travel to conduct business, recreate, and stay connected with friends and family. And if you drive these roads regularly, there is a good chance that you may hit an animal one day - and likely know someone who already has.
