Wyoming Outdoor Recreation Task Force recommends first steps
Monday, December 11, 2017
The Wyoming Outdoor Recreation Task Force has released its report and recommendations to Governor Matt Mead.
The task force represented industry, conservation, user groups and resource managers from around the state.
“I commend the task force for their work and recommendations,” said Governor Mead, “I look forward to reviewing this report and working with the task force as we move forward.”
The Governor expects the Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources to convene a “sub-cabinet” of state agencies (Tourism, Transportation, State Parks, Work Force Services, Game and Fish, State Lands, Business Council and others) to analyze recommendations and frame plans.
The Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources, together with the Wyoming State Parks & Cultural Resources Commission has the statutory responsibility for planning and developing outdoor recreation resources for the state. The Department is developing an Office of Outdoor Recreation under the direction of Division of Parks Administrator Domenic Bravo.
