The Wyoming Game & Fish Department reports they intend to solicit assistance from the Department of Defense’s Innovative Readiness Training Program (IRT). The assistance will include shop construction and cabin remodeling. 

The proposed assistance will take place at the Whiskey Mountain Conservation Camp during the summer this year. 

According to the Department, the Whiskey Mountain Conservation Camp sits within the Torrey Valley, outside of Dubois, and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Whiskey Basin Wildlife Habitat Management Area. This management area provides crucial winter habitat for bighorn sheep, elk and mule deer. The unique location has introduced generations of campers to outdoor skills and world-class wildlife.

It is the hope of the Game and Fish that a renovated camp will begin a new era of conservation education and continue to inspire the next generation of Wyoming conservation leaders.

Game and Fish are alerting construction contractors, labor unions, or private individuals who may have questions or who wish to voice opposition to military assistance for this project may contact Brian Parker from the Wyoming Game & Fish Department at 307-335-2612 or via e-mail at brian.parker@wyo.gov no later than 30 days after the first publication of this notice. 

The Game and wishes to make the public aware that individuals who do not file comments within the time frame noted will be considered to have waived their objections to military assistance for this project.
