About Wyoming Outdoor Council

The Wyoming Outdoor Council is Wyoming’s oldest independent conservation organization. Founded in 1967, we are a member-based advocacy group. We use scientific, legal, and policy expertise to advocate the protection of public lands, wildlife, and clean air and water. We provide support and resources to empower citizens to do the same. We bring people and groups together to find workable solutions to tough conservation problems.

The Wyoming Outdoor Council offers excellent medical, dental, and vision benefits; generous paid family leave and vacation policies; and the opportunity to participate in a retirement plan. Job title and scope of responsibilities may change depending upon experience. We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our work.
