We have Wild & Scenic Status!!

Tetons

It is official!  The House voted 285-140 to approve the omnibus lands bill, and is now complete with President Barack Obama’s signature!   This now designates the Snake River headwaters as Wild and Scenic, will protect 387 miles of the Snake river and its tributaries, as well as put 1.2 million acres of the Wyoming Range off-limits to oil and gas drilling.

Thanks to the late Sen. Craig Thomas for his vision in protecting these natural treasures, to Sen. John Barrasso for carrying on Thomas’ legacy and working diligently to pass the bill, and to each and every one involved in accomplishing this goal.
