Events roundup for Thursday, Aug. 9


Wyoming Hunter and Angler’s Gubernatorial Candidate Forum

  • Wyoming Wildlife Federation Presents:
    The Hunter and Angler’s Gubernatorial Candidate Forum

    Lately we haven’t been hearing much from the candidates on the issues that matter to hunters and anglers. So we wanted to make sure the hunters, anglers, and conservationists of Wyoming got the answers they are looking for. This forum is built to specifically highlight the issues we hold dear – including access, opportunity, healthy wildlife and fish populations, intact ecosystems, and clean air and water – with an aim of encouraging conversation and ultimately political action.

    Article continues below...

    You will hear questions concerning public lands, wildlife funding, sage grouse, wildlife migrations, and others. There will be space for a few screened questions from the audience at the end.

    The event will be held at Durham Hall Auditorium on the campus of Casper College, 6pm-9pm Thursday, August 9th. Casper Wyoming

    Press will be present. Event will be recorded and we will be streaming live on Facebook.

    A casual after party will follow for those attending the event. Location TBD.
