Make Your Voice Heard on Federal Funding Appropriations for Trails
Please take a few minutes to urge Senators Barrasso and Enzi and Representative Cheney to include funding for trails in their annual appropriations requests.
Trails are important to people in every Wyoming community, and many efforts are underway around the state to partner with federal land agencies on much-needed trail improvements. While Wyoming partners are stepping up to help, these partnership efforts also require the federal agencies to step up and participate with proper funding to support agency trail crews and support local volunteer contributions.
Investments in trails are critical as part of Wyoming’s efforts to enhance outdoor recreation opportunities for residents and to serve visitors. There is a need to address years of chronic underfunding and maintenance backlog issues on trail systems around the state, and, especially those close to home trails accessible for residents.
The deadline for appropriation submissions is March 20th for the House and March 23rd 2020 for the Senate, so please use our convenient Action Form to send your request to the Wyoming Delegation today:
We have provided you with sample content, but we urge you to personalize the letter. Your requests carry weight with the Wyoming Delegation and this is a great way to be involved in the future of your public lands and trails.
Thanks for your help with this important issue. Adding your voice to the discussion is one of the best ways to effect positive change.
