Protecting Wyoming’s environment and quality of life

Founded in 1967, the Wyoming Outdoor Council has been working to protect public lands, wildlife, and clean air and water for 52 years.

Help us protect North America’s longest mule deer migration corridor

Over the past year, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management has been offering leases for oil and gas drilling inside of critical and sensitive big game migration corridors, including the famous 150-mile Red Desert to Hoback mule deer migration route. We need your help to make sure this lifeline and important habitat for mule deer and dozens of other iconic Wyoming species is protected.


In 2020 and beyond, the Wyoming Outdoor Council is committed to addressing the threat of climate change. In our recent Frontline, we start these conversations by asking what decisions can we make now that will chart a path toward liveable communities without sacrificing the public lands, wildlife, and clean air and water we love about Wyoming?
