The Little Snake River Museum is home to over 15 historic buildings and countless exhibits depicting the rich history of this secluded ranching valley. Housing thousands of artifacts, photographs, and stories, the museum has pieced together many tales of a bygone era. People who have stayed and people who have moved on have all left their mark on this valley. Come spend a day at the museum exploring their stories and get a glimpse of how they lived.
On the road to nowhere, the Little Snake River Valley is one of Wyoming’s best kept secrets. Winding around ancient volcanic mountains and through lush pasture land, the Little Snake River flows westward into the drier lands of Browns Park, an area steeped in outlaw history. The valley’s rich resources have drawn a variety of residents over the years: native people, explorers, trappers, settlers, homesteaders, miners, stockmen, and outlaws—they have all called this valley home. Visit the Little Snake River Museum and find out why. It’s “worth the stop.”
Since 1976, WAOA has worked hard on behalf of airports in Wyoming on a number of issues important to facilities of all types and sizes. WAOA accomplishes this by: Providing a unified voice for airport operators to commercial, state and federal agencies and to the State legislature and the United States Congress on proposed or pending legislation impacting airports.
Providing for an exchange of operating information between airport operators.
Providing advisory assistance where required to member airports related to educational material and problem resolution.
Promoting safety in the development of airport facilities and operating procedures.
Recently, WAOA has been instrumental in influencing positive outcomes on a number of issues affecting airports throughout the state:
Helped secure State Funding for the maintenance of locally owned navigational aids, significantly reducing operating expenses at several airports.
Worked with the Wyoming Division of Aeronautics to adequately fund the Aeronautics grant and loan programs, providing all airports with alternate sources of capital improvement funds.
Lobbied to secure an increase in the legal debt limit for all sizes of airports.
Introduced state legislation designed to help attract and maintain a Wyoming-based regional airline, which could result in more consistent airline service to the State.
And, at local, state and federal levels, WAOA continues to address a variety of critical air service, airline competition and related issues unique to the State of Wyoming.
Our mission is to help Carbon County residents that have been diagnosed with cancer. The financial assistance provided can be used to help cover travel, lodging, meals and other expenses associated with battling cancer.
Ribbons of Hope is a local Carbon County nonprofit that was formed by several community members. The founding members were concerned that many local people and businesses were consistently donating to various national cancer charities that would call upon them. These organizations all had very good merit, however, the founding members felt that there were several people in the Carbon County area that were battling cancer and were also in need of assistance. The Carbon County Cancer Fund was established in 2013 as a nonprofit organization and began operating under the banner “Ribbons of Hope”. The goals of the organization are to raise funds for disbursement to Carbon County residents diagnosed with cancer and to assist with the cost of travel and other related expenses associated with battling cancer.
