2024 Annual Meeting, June 13-15

Join us in Morton, WY, for the WYNPS meeting in conjunction with the Wyoming BioBlitz!

This year the WYNPS board has decided to hold our annual meeting in conjunction with the Wyoming BioBlitz!! The 2024 BioBlitz will be held at the Wind River Buffalo Initiative (WRBI) site in Morton, WY. We will be assisting the WRBI in gathering ecological data related to buffalo reintroduction on their current lands and the 17,000 acre expansion area. Learn about the WRBI here: https://windriverbuffalo.org/. WYNPS expects to contribute substantial botanical knowledge to local researchers and students, to help answer the questions they have identified as of most significance; in addition, we have committed $1000 to help fund this event, making it possible to hold the event cost-free to Wind River Indian Reservation community members.

Many of you have attended past BioBlitzes, and already know how fun, educational, and satisfying these events are. If you are unfamiliar with the Wyoming BioBlitz, learn more at https://rockies.audubon.org/naturalist/wyoming-bioblitz. We will be joining Audubon Rockies, UW Biodiversity Institute, WY State Parks, WRBI and others to provide this opportunity to explore biodiversity and traditional ecological knowledge on the Wind River Indian Reservation.

The date of the BioBlitz is Thursday through Saturday, June 13-15, 2024.
