Just a few hours south of Yellowstone National Park is Wyoming’s namesake mountain range. The Wyoming Range’s towering peaks and lush forests are home to half of Wyoming’s moose, as well as trophy elk and deer. The mountains also provide critical habitat for rare wildlife like lynx and bears. Its crystal clear streams are one of the last places anglers can find native Colorado River cutthroat trout. Thousands of people from around Wyoming and the nation head here every year to camp, hunt, and fish.
Hunters, anglers, Democrats, Republicans, ranchers, outfitters, and conservationists have worked together to protect this range for years. We all agree: The Wyoming Range is too special to drill.
Please join us in speaking out to protect the last 40,000 acres of the Wyoming Range from oil and gas leasing. The Forest Service is trying to do the right thing by declaring “no leasing” in this special place. They need your support. Please click here to comment today, and tell the Forest Service you favor no leasing in the Wyoming Range. The closing date for comments is May 23.
