"This is an enormously gratifying day. I want to express my heartfelt appreciation to Mr. Wyss, Mr. Ricketts, and all the citizens who worked diligently to protect this magnificent area. Energy workers, miners, ranchers, sportsmen, homeowners, and even musicians in our community came together, and this announcement is a direct result of their efforts. The work to protect the Wyoming Range is not complete, but this campaign has reached a successful and appropriate end," said Dan Smitherman, a former Marine and outfitter who works closely with Citizens for the Wyoming Range, a grassroots organization created to explore alternatives to drilling in the Hoback.Founded in 1972, The Trust for Public Land is the leading nonprofit working to conserve land for people. Operating from more than 30 offices nationwide, The Trust for Public Land has protected more than three million acres from the inner city to the wilderness and helped generate more than $34 billion in public funds for conservation. Nearly ten million people live within a ten-minute walk of a Trust for Public Land park, garden, or natural area, and millions more visit these sites every year.
