WWA to host 18 free summer outings across the state

The Wyoming Wilderness Association (WWA) is offering 18 outings into wild and unique places throughout Wyoming this summer.  Many of the outings will tour areas that need protection from development, providing a great opportunity for solitude, quiet, and wilderness experience and giving the participants an opportunity to use first-hand experiences to make informed decisions about protecting wild places.

WWA asks that those interested do not sign up for outings if unsure of attendance. For more information, visit http://www.wildwyo.org/Outings.php, call WWA at 307-672-2751 or email carolyn@wildwyo.org.
