Protecting and Maintaining Access to Public Lands


“I do not intend that our natural resources shall be exploited by the few against the interest of the many.”

- Theodore Roosevelt

We love our open spaces, and the importance of protecting our access to them—it’s the one thing we all agree on. I want my grandchildren to be able to look out from their tent and enjoy the Snowies, fish the Green River, or hike in the Winds just as I did with my sister and dad growing up.

Sportsman and outdoorsmen understand that we also need to protect the commercial needs of our agricultural and extraction industries, as well as the privacy of landowners. But this is Wyoming, not New York. We know how to be good neighbors, treat each other with respect, and work together to make sure we fulfill our responsibilities to future generations to preserve our land. This is why the Dave & Wendy Dodson Fund supports those organizations committed to preserving public lands and maintaining open access for Wyoming families.
