January 29, 2020



Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon will be embarking on a listening tour this weekend in regards to his Migration Corridor Executive Order. The executive order, which was released in December, pertains to the Sublette, Baggs and Platte Valley Mule Deer Migration Corridors.

The tour will be co-hosted by Gordon, the Wyoming County Commissioners Association and the commissioners of the respective counties. The tour will include stops in Rawlins, Pinedale, Kemmerrer and Rock Springs. 

According to a press release from Gordon’s office, “in each community he will engage with residents and local officials about the proposed Executive Order, which is intended to create a state-led approach to support conservation with multiple-use opportunities.”

The press release goes on to state that the Executive Order contains many of the recommendations released by the Migration Corridor Advisory Group. Those recommendations can be found by visiting https://sites.google.com/view/wywildlifemigrationadvisorygrp/home. The Executive Order can also be found on the website.

Migration corridor maps and date for the Sublette, Baggs and Platte Valley Mule Deer populations can be found at https://wgfd.wyo.gov/wildlife-in-wyoming/migration/corridor-maps-and-data.

The first stop for Gordon will be at 7:30 a.m. on February 1 at the Carbon County Higher Education Center, 1650 Harshman Street, in Rawlins.
