Welcome back to Wyoming State Parks
 


 

 

Finding your perfect vacation spot has never been easier!

Mountain bikes, boats and fishing poles are really just toys for grown-ups; so go be a kid again. After all, we've got plenty of trails for getting mud on those tires, including those in Guernsey, Buffalo Bill and Curt Gowdy State Parks.

If making a splash is more your style, we've got space for water sports and fishing at our many reservoirs . Once you're done playing, soak those bones in the therapeutic mineral water at Hot Springs State Park.

When bedtime rolls around, park the RV or roll out a sleeping bag; because at our overnight sites, all it takes to check in is a zip of the tent.

"I have the distinction of being one of a handful of people who has been to every Wyoming State Park and Historic site. Maybe the only one who has done it during one month! These are among the best kept secrets in the United States." -- Alan O'Hashi (Facebook Review)

Harmful Cyanobacterial Bloom (HCB) Advisories in Wyoming Waters

We just want to give everyone a heads up that Wyoming DEQ sampled the Keyhole reservoir for cyanobacteria blooms on Monday, March 8th. The results showed the existence of the bloom. We are asking users to take proper precautions and avoid the areas of the reservoir with the bloom, make sure that you are rinsing any fish and keeping only the filet portion, and keeping animals and pets away from the bloom. The areas of the reservoir that tested for the blooms were in the Wind Creek Area, along the north shore in the Narrows, and near the dam, however, other areas may have blooms as well.

Wyoming Naturalist Program Launched, will meet at Boysen State Park in May

Wyoming Naturalist Program Launched, will meet at Boysen State Park in May

For those with a hankering to learn more about the great outdoors and garner the title of Certified Wyoming Master Naturalist, the opportunity has arrived. With the launch of Wyoming’s Master Naturalist Program, the state joins many others in hosting a program that trains participants to be environmental stewards and to teach that stewardship to others.

The Wyoming Naturalist Program is coordinated by a committee of state agencies and non-profits that includes Audubon Rockies, Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Wyoming State Parks, the University of Wyoming Biodiversity Institute, and University of Wyoming Extension. The training will include lessons in biodiversity, ecology, conservation, management and interpretation. The 2020 program will include lessons hosted at Boysen State Park May 22-23.

Jacelyn Downey, Audubon Rockies’ education program manager, said “Wyoming is an amazing state with cool projects in need of volunteers. Becoming a Wyoming Master Naturalist provides an opportunity to assist with research projects or pass on knowledge via outdoor classrooms. Each person picks the volunteer opportunity that appeals to them.”

The 2021 inaugural class is full, but individuals are encouraged to apply for the program next year to become leaders in the effort to protect our natural resources and the special places where we live.

For more information, please see the Wyoming Naturalist Program at https://wyomingnaturalists.wyomingbiodiversity.org or call Dan Bach with Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites, and Trails at 307-777-6314.
