Sublette County Natural Resource Tour Sept. 15
Sponsored by the Green River Valley Land Trust
August 26, 2009
The Green River Valley Land Trust (GRVLT) is a private, non-profit land conservation organization, based in Sublette County, Wyoming. We are not an environmental organization, and we are not an advocacy group. We have worked with more than 40 families to conserve nearly 24,000 acres in Sublette County. We are also working with landowners in a groundbreaking effort to modify 500 miles of fence to be wildlife-friendly in the next five years. We are one of the nation’s first accredited land trusts, and the only accredited land trust in Wyoming, to date.
The GRVLT is hosting – along with several other local groups – a NATURAL RESOURCES TOUR for Teton and Sublette County participants on Tuesday, September 15, 2009.
