Greater Yellowstone Coalition (GYC) is engaging in the 2019 session of the Wyoming Legislature in Cheyenne. Below is a list of proposed bills and resolutions that we are watching followed with points on our perspective.
We’re disappointed to report that we can’t support a Wyoming county’s proposal for critical wild lands east of Yellowstone, because last night’s rushed, forced vote on the proposal doesn’t respect the collaborative, grassroots approach we committed to when we signed on to work with this county in 2016.
Though I’ve driven south on Idaho’s Hwy 33 in Teton Valley (ID) thousands of times, on a recent morning I took particular notice of the Palisades Range straddling the Idaho-Wyoming border. In an hour I’d be flying over the Range to better understand why it’s critical to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
