Nick Neylon, Deputy Director of the Wyoming Department of State Parks and CulturalResources, has been elected as the Northwest Region representative to the National Association of State Park Directors (NASPD).

Neylon has been employed by Wyoming State Parks for six years and has more than 30 years of experience with parks, historic sites and museums around the country.

NASPD is a national organization with a mission to “promote and advance the state park systems of America for their own significance, as well as for their important contributions to the nation’s environment, heritage, health and economy.”
