SHERIDAN — Projects ranging from building trails in the Shoshone and Bridger-Teton national forests in northwest Wyoming to building a yurt at Glendo State Park will be conducted this summer by members of the Wyoming Conservation Corps, which this year includes Sheridan student Tera Thomas.

University of Wyoming students will work on 24 projects, including trail maintenance and construction, fencing, boundary signs, noxious weed removal, beetle kill mitigation, tree planting, historic preservation and fuels reduction.

Administered by Residence Life and Dining Services in UW’s Division of Student Affairs, WCC is a grant-supported program that engages students in conservation-based projects throughout the state.
