Wyoming Wildlife And Natural Resource Trust Meets Next Week
The Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust will meet on Tuesday, 28 August 2012, in Etna to review project progress and discuss other business. The meeting will be at the new Etna Community Center, beginning at 8:30 in the morning, and will continue throughout the day. According to Board Chairman Delaine Roberts, Etna, the August meeting is one of the highlights of the year. Among the highlights of this meeting will be a review of invasive salt-cedar and Russian olive removal in the Big Horn Basin, cheat grass control efforts in Teton County, and statewide river projects that allow greater fish migration. The meeting will also include a report from the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission and a panel review of conservation easements done in Wyoming in the past few years. Other topics on the agenda include an update on the WWNRT role in bark beetle control in the Black Hills, and potential rehabilitation efforts in the wake of this summer's wildfire activity.
