Join Keep It Public, Wyoming and partners for a rally to support the creation of an official “Public Lands Day” in Wyoming. We’re bringing together outdoors businesses with sportsmens and conservation groups, as well as speakers Conrad Anker, Jenni Lowe-Anker, and Max Lowe to advocate for the protection of Wyoming’s most valuable asset: YOUR PUBLIC LANDS.
Organized by the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance and Keep it Public, Wyoming partners, the event will feature food and drinks, children’s games, a raffle, and opportunities to participate in educational and advocacy activities. Advocacy efforts will focus on the support of the proposed Public Lands Day legislation, which will establish the last Saturday of September as an annual “Public Lands Day” and recognize the economic, recreational, scenic, and historical value of public lands in the state of Wyoming and encourage Wyoming residents to engage in volunteer stewardship activities which contribute to public land conservation. While the beginning portion of the event is free, tickets will be needed to listen to the speakers and can be purchased at the Center for the Arts website.
This proposed draft legislation is just that—a proposal. We recognize that sponsors often make tweaks and the legislative process can make changes over the course of consideration.
WHEN: Wednesday, September 6, 2017
from 5:30–9 p.m. (Free from 5:30–7 p.m.)
WHERE: Center of the Arts, 240 S. Glenwood St., Jackson
