Who We Are and What We're Doing

The Wyoming EPSCoR Office is located on the University of Wyoming main campus in Wyoming Hall on the 4th floor. These past years have allowed EPSCoR to actively engage Wyoming residents from girl scouts through water resource managers at the city and state level in projects that address the current and future state of the region’s water. Check out how we do what we do!
