Migration Corridor Management Listening Sessions set for Feb. 1
In Rawlins, Pinedale, Kemmerer and Rock Springs
January 28, 2020
Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon will embark on a listening tour of four Wyoming communities on Saturday, February 1, to share details and answer questions related to his Migration Corridor Executive Order (EO).
The tour, which is co-hosted by Governor Gordon, the Wyoming County Commissioners Association and the commissioners of the respective counties, will include stops in Rawlins, Pinedale, Kemmerer and Rock Springs. In each community, he will engage with residents and local officials about the proposed Executive Order, which is intended to create a state-led approach to support conservation with multiple-use opportunities.
A draft of the Order was released in December. It contains many of the recommendations released by the Migration Corridor Advisory Group, which met publicly three times in 2019. These include changes to the process for officially designating a corridor, the establishment of area working groups for corridors considered for designation, and a requirement to actively engage landowners prior to corridor designation.
Rawlins: 7:30-8:30 am, Carbon County Higher Education Center, 1650 Harshman St.
Pinedale: 10-11 am, Sublette BOCES, 665 N. Tyler Ave.
Kemmerer: 12:30-1:30 pm, TBD
