Around Wyoming, Tuesday, February 6

A Wyoming-based hunting and angling conservation organization has gone national.

It has started to work with agencies in Colorado, Montana, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Alaska to adapt the messaging for their local populations.

The Primrose Retirement Community in Gillette will be brightening people’s days next week. It’s Random Acts of Kindness week and the community will celebrate by handing out gift cards and other items at the Council of Community Services.

Another place looking to celebrate the community - Bighorn County, Grow Greybull, and the Lovell Area and Basin Area Chambers of Commerce are looking for a Big Horn County sticker design. It will become part of the Wyoming Office of Tourism’s Track Your Trip program. Submissions are due February 15.
