CHEYENNE - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department welcomes new Senior Game Warden Trevor Meadows to Cheyenne.

Laramie - The department added a new senior game warden position based on the city’s growing population and increasing wildlife-related workload. Meadows will not be responsible for a specific game warden district, but will have a diverse set of duties. He will work closely with Cheyenne District Game Warden Mitch Renteria to address local workloads and will assist with the Access Yes program in southeastern Wyoming. His responsibilities also include issuing falconry permits, and helping administer the game warden exam when the department needs to hire new game wardens. Meadows will work out of the Cheyenne Game and Fish office and will keep office hours a couple days each week to assist the public with requests such as Hull Identification Number (HIN) inspections and Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) inspections for boats.
Originally from Modesto, Calif., Meadows graduated from Humboldt State University in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology and management. While in California, he worked as a restoration biologist for the non-profit group River Partners. He was responsible for designing, planting and monitoring large habitat models. He excelled at habitat work and was quickly promoted, but his lifelong dream of becoming a game warden finally led him to Wyoming.
 
He joined Game in Fish in the summer of 2016 as a crew member on the statewide Habitat and Access crew. He spent that summer installing an irrigation pipeline on Wick Wildlife Habitat Management Area. He later moved into a game warden position in Casper in December 2016.
He is excited about his new position and finally achieving his goals of becoming a game warden. “The biggest challenge of this position is that I’ll be wearing a lot of different hats,” he said. “I’ll be working a lot with landowners, working with the public on law enforcement, working on permitting, working with falconers, and helping with everyday game warden duties. But that diversity is the best thing about the position,” he said.
 
Meadows is a huge outdoor enthusiast and enjoys backpacking, hiking, hunting, fishing and spending time with his dog.
