WyoFile reporter Angus M. Thuermer Jr. paddles Heeshma down the Green River below Squaretop Mountain, checking out a corner of his natural resources beat. The Bridger Wilderness in the Wind River Range is one of his favorite haunts and he frequently reports about the Bridger-Teton National Forest. His groundbreaking reporting this year includes:  

First to report about an effort to reclassify wilderness study areas, and about a gas field that threatens an entire county’s sage grouse population. He broke the news about a secret deal between Wyoming and federal government regarding how many grizzly bears should remain in the Yellowstone ecosystem after delisting, and filed the only report on what a father called a “joke” $13,120 fine imposed on a company where his son worked when he was killed by a bear.

Your donations keep Angus fighting for the information that is the foundation for these unique and timely stories.
