The Wyoming Public Lands Initiative (WPLI) is a collaborative, county-led process intended to result in one, multi-county legislative lands package that is broadly supported by public lands stakeholders in Wyoming, and advanced to the Congressional delegation for introduction in Congress. The ultimate goal is a new federal law that governs the designation and management of Wyoming’s 42 Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and 3 U.S. Forest Service (USFS) Wilderness Study Areas (WSAs) in Wyoming; and, where opportunities exist, addresses other public land management issues affecting the broader landscape.
The Wyoming County Commissioners Association (WCCA) has established principles and guidelines for the Wyoming Public Lands Initiative (WPLI). Details on how Natrona County is participating can be found here.
