New plan could open Wyo. wildlife refuge to public

Green River, Wyo. (AP) – Federal officials are working on a new
management plan for the little-known Cokeville Meadows National
Wildlife Refuge that could open the property to the public.

The refuge lies along a 20-mile stretch in western Wyoming’s
Bear River Valley. It was created nearly 20 years ago as a haven
for migratory birds and riparian habitat.

The refuge has never been open to public use, but a new plan
could make it larger and open it to a variety of uses, including
hunting and fishing.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesman Carl Millegan says the
agency hopes to complete the management plan for the refuge over
the next two years.
