The second session of the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce’s “Lunchtime Conversations About Open Spaces” will be held Tuesday, March 22, at 12 p.m. at Luminous Brewhouse. The discussion will center around “Outdoor Recreation and Its Impacts.”
Coordinated by the Chamber’s Ag & Natural Resources Committee, each session features a panel of representatives from area businesses and organizations who will jumpstart the conversation and interactively explore with attendees what is balanced use of our open space, and can we continue to balance that use into the future? They’ll also discuss the importance of open spaces to our community’s economy and culture now and into the future. Attendees are encouraged to join in with questions and discussion.
The March 22 session will feature panelists Patrick Harrington of the Wyoming Outdoor Recreation Office, Steve Gage with City of Sheridan Parks and Recreation, Phillip Huckins from Back Country Horsemen, Travis Harnish of Bighorn Mountain Crawlers and David Haile from Black Mountain Nordic Club.
Upcoming conversations include “Effects of Land Use Policies” on April 26 and “Where Do We Go from Here?” on May 24.
Each session will be held from 12 to 1 p.m. at Luminous Brewhouse with attendees welcome to stay after for further discussion. Participants are welcome to bring lunch. There is no cost to attend the series. For more information, call the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce at (307) 672-2485.
