    The Wyoming Outdoor Weekend has been put on through a partnership between the Lander Economic Development Association and the Wyoming Game & Fish Department to showcase the Fremont County area as a premier outdoor recreation destination, promote the local economy and community, and inspire interest in and conservation of Wyoming’s wildlife resource.

    Proceeds from the event dedicated to habitat/wildlife will be going to the Game and Fish HWY 26 Project. Wyoming Outdoor Weekend is excited to support this crucial initiative that will have immense positive impacts on the deer along that stretch, and hope to raise a significant amount of money for the project. (You can support by clicking here!)

    US Highway 26 from Stoney Point west of Dubois, Wyoming to the Wind River Reservation poses significant risks for both motorists and wildlife due to high numbers of wildlife-vehicle collisions. This project has risen to the forefront as the top wildlife crossing project for both the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and the Wyoming Department of Transportation.
