  • Fiscal impacts of wind development to towns, counties, and Wyoming 
  • Perspectives from wind developers 
  • Community development and business opportunities 
  • Values, viewsheds, and western identity 
  • Wind-wildlife impacts and emerging mitigation 
  • Environmental trade-offs of wind energy, from local to global 
  • Existing regulatory structure and opportunities for public involvement in Wyoming’s wind future
  • Planning and siting for wind energy in Wyoming

Registration is free but be sure to reserve your spot. Continental breakfasts, lunches, and an evening reception included.
