Wyoming Conservation Corps Will Be Back At Work This Summer

University of Wyoming

The Wyoming Conservation Corps (WCC) will be back at work. Last month, project proposals for this summer were put on hold while administrators looked for a more sustainable funding system to support the program.

Director Patrick Call says they were able to obtain one-time funding to continue the program. The WCC is a grant-supported program that funds conservation projects throughout the state. Call says the program received a $41,000 loan from the UW Research Office and about $200,000 in one-time funding from Residence Life and Dining Service, the UW unit that oversees the program.

Call said the plan for this summer calls for three crews to complete 18 10-day projects. Nine of the projects will be sponsored by the Wyoming Division of State Parks and Historic Sites, traditionally the cooperating agency that supports the most WCC work projects each year. The newly hired program coordinator, Patrick Harrington, already is working to fill the remaining nine projects.
