On June 4th the Wyoming Board of Agriculture and the Wyoming Natural Resource Foundation will host a volunteer work day at the Fairgrounds to plant 52 large trees and install tree guards.Support has come from many agencies: local conservation districts, county commissioners, supporters of the Wyoming State Fair and  ranch families.

"The Living Legacy program was initiated by the Board of Agriculture in 2006, as a result of this program and the new donations for this year, over 160 trees have been planted on the State Fairgrounds,” said Patrick Zimmerer, Vice President of the Board of Agriculture. “We are really excited to add a new component this year and have tree guards installed around a number of the trees,” he added.

Bobbie Frank, Foundation Executive Director, says 40 people have already signed up to help on June 4th, but more are needed and welcomed.

“We welcome anyone who wants to help get these trees in the ground and the tree guards installed,” she added.

Lunch and dinner will be provided for all volunteers.
