CASPER, Wyo. — Governor Mark Gordon’s Sublette Mule Deer Local Area Working Group will meet for the second time in person in Pinedale at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 25, according to a release Monday from the governor’s office.

The working group is one of three created by Gordon’s Migration Corridor Executive Order 2020-1 to examine the effectiveness of corridor designation on the migratory mule deer herd and its potential impacts on the local economy and private landowners.

A virtual option will be made available for the public for those who cannot attend in person. Members of the public may attend the meeting with an opportunity to comment.
