CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The wildlife and natural resource trust started in 2005 as an organization to help conserve and enhance wildlife habitats throughout the state of Wyoming.

Appointed by the Governor they work on projects that create open spaces that benefit hunters, fishers, campers, and wildlife.

Their latest projects consist of river rehabilitation to help successful migration and spawning of fish. Wetland creation, clearing irrigation ways and flood planning. As well as creating migratory paths for mule deer moose and antelope.

The Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust recently received $200,000 from The Greater Yellowstone Coalition for the Dry Piney wildlife crossing project north of La Barge in southwest Wyoming.

This underpass will create wildlife crossings and miles of protective fencing that keep animals and people safe along the highway US. 189 from La Barge to Big Piney.

These projects are done will the support, funding and cooperation of 140 partners and many volunteers including conservation districts and the federal government.
