UW Suspends Conservation Work Program

Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A University of Wyoming program that paid students to perform conservation work around the state during the summer months has been put on hold because of financial problems.

The Wyoming Conservation Corps program has stopped taking on new projects while it is reviewed by UW officials.

UW spokesman Chad Baldwin says it’s hoped the program can be revived in partial form next year. If not, the program will be suspended at least a year.

The conservation program has been supported by state and federal funding as well as some corporate and nonprofit organizations.

But Baldwin says state and federal funding has run out or been reduced. He says officials are trying to make the program more self-sustaining financially.

Founded in 2006, the program has completed more than 200 conservation projects.
