Wyoming Weed Watchlist Wants Invasives Dispatched Before Taking Root (May 2, 2013)
University of Wyoming Extension.
A new publication urges residents to whack invasive weeds before becoming a problem in Wyoming. Photographs and descriptions of 24 weeds - from purple star thistle to Syrian bean-caper - are listed in the new four-color publication "Wyoming Weed Watchlist Field Guide," B-1227, from the University of Wyoming Extension. The publication is designed to enhance prevention and early detection efforts of weeds not yet widely established in Wyoming, said Brian Mealor, extension weed specialist. The bulletin is available for free download.

New Wyoming Aquatic Invasive Species Regulations (Apr 1, 2013)
Wyoming Game and Fish Department.
New Wyoming regulations require that any watercraft transported into Wyoming from Mar 1 through Nov 30 must undergo a mandatory inspection by an authorized inspector prior to launching in any water of the state. Any watercraft that has been in a water infested with zebra or quagga mussels within the past 30 days is required to undergo a mandatory inspection by an authorized inspector prior to launching year-round.

Aquatic Invasive Species Program Went Smoothly In 2012 (Oct 29, 2012)
Wyoming Game and Fish Department.
Wyoming's third boating season following passage of Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) legislation in 2010 was deemed a success based on the numbers of boats inspected, AIS decal sales, and overall cooperation from boaters. From May 17 through Sep 9, about 38,659 watercraft inspections were conducted at 36 different waters throughout Wyoming. Boaters are encouraged to follow the Drain, Clean, and Dry protocol each and every time they launch, even when an inspection station is not present at the water. Additional information on aquatic invasive species is on the Game and Fish website wgfd.wyo.gov.
