Working with partners, such as private land owners, is important because the WLCI will be most successful when the entire landscape, including both public and private lands, is enhanced. Participation can occur through attendance at meetings, information sharing and contributions.

 

The public is invited to attend and participate in WLCI Executive Committee meetings, which are held several times a year. The WLCI also holds quarterly Local Project Development Team meetings, where public participation is needed. If you have ideas for projects, they can be presented at these meetings, sent to the WLCI Coordination Team through the BLM Rock Springs Field Office at (307) 352-0397, or emailed toWLCI_WYMail@blm.gov. Project proposal forms can be downloaded or requested by contacting the WLCI Coordination Team ((307) 352-0397;WLCI_WYMail@blm.gov).

 

An essential part of the WLCI’s work involves collecting various data sets and other information that can be helpful in decision-making processes. Many different individuals and groups hold information that has been collected, and the WLCI provides a data clearinghouse to document information known to be available. If you have data or information you are willing to share, send an email to WLCI_WYMail@blm.gov to describe your data resources, files, photos, or other information, and how to contact you so we can arrange a file transfer.

 

The WLCI looks at the big picture for southwest Wyoming and is working hard to conserve this special place, but can’t do it alone. By making a gift to WLCI, you will help us conserve natural habitats and preserve our wide open spaces, help us build partnerships to conserve our special places, and help us educate the public on how to sustain our wild places and natural resources. The WLCI has developed an agreement with the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of Wyoming to manage funds contributed for WLCI work. You can contribute directly online. You can also download a donor gift form or send a check or credit card contribution to the Wildlife Heritage Foundation at P.O. Box 20088, Cheyenne, WY 82003, with instructions to apply the contribution to WLCI.
