Citizens for the Wyoming Range is hosting a "Rendezvous for the Wyoming Range" community barbeque in Daniel WY on Saturday, August 20th. Former Governor Dave Freudenthal will be the guest speaker along with Bridger-Teton National Forest Supervisor Jacque Buchanan.
Representatives from Governor Matt Mead’s office, the Wyoming congressional delegation, Wyoming Game and Fish Department and the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality will also attend the event, as well as local officials.
"This event is mostly just a good socializing time with live music and great barbeque. We’ll provide up-dates about the latest news and folks will have a chance to connect with state officials and friends. I expect we’ll hear a rousing speech by former Gov. Dave, who is much respected for his work in passing the Wyoming Range Legacy Act" remarked Dan Smitherman, a local outfitter and spokesman for the grassroots group.
The Rendezvous for the Wyoming Range is free and open to the public, scheduled for Saturday, August 20 from 4 – 8 pm. Barbeque and other refreshments are provided. The event will be held at the Double J Ranch in Daniel, located 5 miles west on HWY 354 from Daniel Junction. Live music will be provided by the local band Tie Hacks.
The public is invited to attend to show their support for protecting the Wyoming Range. Although the Wyoming Range Legacy Act passed in 2009, there still remains many thousands of acres of contested and grandfathered leases in this part of the Bridger-Teton National Forest that could be developed for oil and gas.
