People in Wyoming love the outdoors. Our vast and dramatic landscapes humble us, inspire us, and support us. We live in them, work in them, and play in them. And whether we are running a backhoe or running a river, we share a direct and intimate connection with the land.

The Trust for Public Land has been at the forefront of preserving the places that Wyoming communities care about most—that support our livelihoods and outdoor way of life. Working from regional offices in Bozeman, Montana and Jackson, Wyoming, our conservation and park experts bring local knowledge and expertise to Our Land and Water and Parks for People programs.

Help Save Astoria Hot Springs Park!

For decades, residents and visitors to Jackson, Wyoming, enjoyed these natural mineral soaking pools on the banks of the Snake River for birthday parties, picnics, and camping trips. But in the late 1990s, the facility closed and the community lost access to one its most-loved recreation areas. Now, the Town of Jackson, designers, park planners, and community groups are working to protect the property from development and transform 100 acres along the Snake River into a unique park.

The Hoback Basin is an extraordinary and unique land, part of Greater Yellowstone and one of the last unspoiled wild places in the country. Oil and natural gas are important businesses in Wyoming, but local communities galvanized around a common belief that the Hoback is “too precious to drill.”

With support from the LOR Foundation, The Trust for Public Land is launching a pilot program to demonstrate how rural communities can use land-and-water conservation to develop and support health and livability—how they can be empowered to protect, care for, and enjoy their surrounding lands and waters.
