Cheyenne - The largest celebration of Wyoming’s wildlife and wild places is coming again to Casper this spring as the official kick-off for the outdoor season. The Wyoming Outdoor Expo returns to the Casper Event Center May 7-9 with three days of outdoor and recreational activities for families and kids. 

The event is open to the public on Thursday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Friday with extended hours from 9 a.m. - 8 p.m. On Friday evening beginning at 5 p.m., there will be a barbecue for the first 500 attendees. Schools can sign up to attend on Thursday or Friday until April 1; grants for transportation costs are available. 

“This year at the Wyoming Outdoor Expo, we are expanding learning opportunities to include all ages and experience levels,” said Kathryn Boswell, Wyoming Game and Fish Department hunter and angler participation coordinator. “No matter if you are someone new to an activity like fishing or have been catching trophy-sized trout for years, there is something for you at Expo.”

The Wyoming Outdoor Expo is free and boasts over 80 booths featuring hands-on activities and information to learn outdoor skills and explore outside. Participants of all ages and skill levels can visit booths to learn skills like fly casting, using binoculars, rock identification and following a blood trail.

“Avid outdoorsmen and women can sharpen skills at booths that go into detail about using the Game and Fish Hunt Planner or how to use leashed tracking dogs,” Boswell said. 

During Expo, Game and Fish Director Brian Nesvik will officially kick off Inspire a Kid, an initiative that connects youth and families to Wyoming’s wildlife to build the next generation of conservationists. 

“We want to help families enjoy the outdoors together, learn new activities and have fun,” Boswell said.

The Expo is an event in partnership between Game and Fish and the Wyoming State Parks’ Office of Outdoor Recreation.  More details and a full schedule of events is posted at wyomingexpo.com.
