Wyoming Outdoor Recreation’s Bighorn Basin Outdoor Recreation Collaborative

In late November and early December, Wyoming Outdoor Recreation’s six Collaboratives met for their bi-monthly meetings. Conveyed throughout the state by Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites, and Trails, these initiatives bring together local community members, recreation stakeholders, businesses, conservation groups, federal and state agencies, and elected officials to identify and prioritize opportunities for the growth and enhancement of outdoor recreation.

During the Bighorn Basin Outdoor Recreation Collaborative’s (BBORC) November 29, membership meeting, members enjoyed a Wyoming Outdoor Recreation update from staff members and a brief presentation from the Wyoming Department of Transportation. Collaborative members went on to discuss BBORC's Strategic Plan in breakout sessions and reported back to the group on areas of success and items and projects that are still ongoing.

BBORC represents communities that lie within the eastern and southern portions of the Bighorn Basin in Northwest Wyoming. BBORC was the first collaborative to be assembled, and since its 2018 conception the collaborative has become an asset to its state and federal partners.

February meeting dates, times and locations will be announced prior to January 31. Members of the public are welcome to attend collaborative meetings in-person or virtually, and there is a designated time for public comment near the end of each meeting.

Established by recommendation of the 2017 Governor’s Outdoor Recreation Task force, the Office of Outdoor Recreation aims to diversify Wyoming’s economy by expanding, enhancing, and promoting responsible recreational opportunities through collaboration, outreach, and coordination with stakeholders, landowners, private industry, and public officials.
