CASPER, Wyo. — The Platte River Trails Trust will share this year’s goals and host a guest speaker at its next annual meeting on Feb. 15.

This year’s meeting luncheon at the Tate Pumphouse will include special guest Patrick Harrington, manager of the Wyoming Office of Outdoor Recreation, as well as an introduction to the organization’s new executive director.

Each year, the annual meeting is filled with conversation and celebration of the work the organization completed the year prior. 2022 was a milestone year for PRTT, marking 40 years of developing its community trail system. PRTT also released a Trail Map, hosted the 30th Annual Riverfest, facilitated Art on the Go and much more.

In addition to celebrating the work of its citizen-led organization, the meeting will highlight PRTT’s goals for 2023 and beyond, including the expansion of the River Trail westward to Robertson Road, the extension of the Rail Trail to Edness Kimball Wilkins State Park, the addition of a neighborhood trail connection to 2nd Street and the Rail Trail, and future plans for trail expansion to the Rim Rock recreation area west of Casper.

This year, the trust is hosting a special guest speaker, Patrick Harrington, from the Wyoming Outdoor Recreation Office. Since earning his degree in Environment and Natural Resources, Harrington has spent his career as a leader in the field and an expert on Wyoming’s outdoor recreation. Harrington will speak on the economic impact of outdoor recreation in Wyoming and the important part the Platte River Trails play in Wyoming’s outdoor recreation.

The meeting will take place Feb. 15 at 11:30 a.m. at the Tate Pumphouse, located at 1775 W 1st St.

A $25 registration is required. Seats can be reserved at platterivertrails.com.
