SHERIDAN – The Wyoming Office of Outdoor Recreation will host a virtual public meeting to discuss the new Wyoming Outdoor Recreation Grant Program, which launched June 30.

The new grant program aims to award funds to projects focused on responding to the impact of COVID-19, new outdoor recreation infrastructure and economic impact in local communities. This could include projects that include hiking trails, water-based recreation, shooting ranges, campgrounds, climbing infrastructure, and more.

Wyoming Outdoor Recreation staff provide an overview of this exciting new program, which includes qualifications, important dates, pre-application processes and more, before asking participants questions.
