Bringing hunters and anglers together and building an effective and informed advocacy voice is the mission for the Camo at the Capitol program. The program includes advocacy training and legislative action days at the Wyoming State Capitol, all aimed at cultivating a strong conservation voice for sportsmen and women, culminating in lasting policy changes that benefit wildlife and our sporting heritage.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR CAMO AT THE CAPITOL ON FEBURARY 15, 2024!
Camo at the Capitol provides an opportunity for hunters, anglers, and other conservationists to exercise their public voice. Attendees will learn the ins and out’s of the legislative process, including bill creation, tracking, and ultimately its passing (or not passing) into law. Those who attend will not only learn the skill necessary for communicating with lawmakers but will also have the opportunity to speak directly with elected officials as they lobby for specific bills affecting the hunting and angling community.
Gas reimbursements are available for attendees who carpool with at least two Camo at the Capitol attendees.
We're also looking for additional volunteers! If you would like to make a wild game appetizer at the Legislative Reception, contact Jess Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org

New at the 2024 Camo at the Capitol event are two different breakout sessions starting at 9:00 am.
One is for those who need a refresher on how the Legislature works. If you haven’t been involved in state-level politics since your high school civics class, this will be for you!
The other session will be for those who have attended Camo at the Capitol in the past, or those who are old hat with the Wyoming Legislature. That way they can get more into the nitty gritty on the topics at hand. Come ready to learn!
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Walk the halls of Wyoming's State House before getting an opportunity to pull your elected officials off the floor for discussion on bills that are important to you.
