“Flowers don’t worry about how they’re going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.”
The Wyoming Office of Outdoor Recreation is thrilled to announce the opening of a grant program dedicated to supporting outdoor recreation collaboratives throughout Wyoming. These funds are made available by the Wyoming Office of Tourism for developing innovative product ideas emerging from outdoor recreation collaborative efforts and planning meetings, with the aim of fortifying Wyoming’s outdoor recreation and tourism economy. We will be accepting applications from local communities, non-profits, and land managers through Monday, April 1, 2024 at 5 p.m. MT. For more information on the application process and eligibility criteria, please contact Brynn Hirschman at 307-701-5011 or brynn.hirschman@wyo.gov.
