Proposed Wyoming outdoor recreation website seeking support
Cheyenne, WY. – Darin Westby, the director of Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources is pushing a proposal to set up an interactive website for outdoor recreationists in Wyoming. The idea is receiving a lot of support including Gov. Matt Mead proposing $75,000 toward making the project happen in his suggested budget that will be presented this next legislative session.
The legislature’s Joint Appropriations Committee is recommending twice that amount, $150,000, for the project. Westby said neither amount is enough to create the kind of site his agency envisions.
He says his agency plans to approach the state’s outdoor associations for contributions to the site. The site would allow the public to post outdoor activities and locations they have enjoyed in Wyoming.
