Green River middle and high school students are adopting 40 brown trout under Trout Unlimited's "Adopt-A-Trout" program to learn about fish and track their movement over the next 16 months. Oil City News reports Trout Unlimited and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department started catching and tagging trout last month. They are asking any anglers who catch tagged fish to return them to the water so the program can continue.
County 10 writes that two Riverton teens are holding the first ever local car, truck and bike show next Friday. The show will raise awareness for wearing helmets and raise money to purchase helmets to give out. Randy Mock Jr. has been a helmet advocate for the last two years since he sustained a traumatic brain injury after falling off of a slow-moving ATV when the driver hit a rut. Since then, he has been raising awareness and giving out helmets to the community. There is a $10 entry fee or you can bring a helmet.
And according to the Sublette Examiner, four members of the Flicks 'N' Pins junior travel squad will compete this July in the Junior Gold Championships bowling competition. The national competition will be held in Michigan.
