Be Part of Southwest Wyoming’s Landscape Program!
The partnerships represented by the WLCI are most effective if they include the individuals and groups who live and work in southwest Wyoming. Three great ways to get involved are project development, information sharing, and making a contribution. (Brochure in PDF)
Working with various partners is important because the WLCI will be most successful when the entire landscape is enhanced. Information gathered through scientific inventory and assessment of species and habitat is combined with local input and knowledge to develop and implement conservation projects. The WLCI holds regular Local Project Development Team meetings, where public participation is needed and expected. If you have ideas for projects, they can be presented at these meetings or sent to the WLCI Coordination Team through the BLM High Desert District Office at (307) 352-0227 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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, use the web feedback form available on this web page or send an email to email@example.com to describe your data resources, files, photos, or other information, and how to contact you so we can arrange a file transfer.
The funds received for development and implementation of science and conservation work has largely been through Federal appropriations from Congress to the participating agencies. In order to facilitate broader partnerships, the WLCI is in the process of developing an agreement with a 501c(3) to manage funds contributed for WLCI work. More information coming soon!
