49th Annual Meeting
Powder River’s 49th Annual Meeting, Reimagining Wyoming: Buffalo, Transformation & Sustainability, will be online this year. We are thrilled to feature Jason Baldes, Tribal Buffalo Program Manager for the National Wildlife Federation, on Friday, Nov. 5th at 5:30 pm. Jason’s presentation is free and open to the public. Indigenous people have a long relationship with buffalo that includes practical land management and economics, as well as a cultural and spiritual understanding of humans’ place in the web of life. Jason’s talk will help us imagine how buffalo can be part of a sustainable transformation for Wyoming.
The Business Meeting, Powder River members only, will be Saturday, Nov. 6th at 9:30 am. This is our opportunity to set policy for our work and review the accomplishments from the past year.
Both events will be held on Zoom, and one registration takes care of both events. You can register here.
Our popular Silent Auction is also online this year. You can easily bid on a wide variety of items, including locally crafted jewelry, stunning artwork by Wyoming artists, sporting goods, and more. The auction goes live on Oct. 27th at noon and runs through Nov. 6th at 5 pm. Visit 32auctions.com/prbrc2021 to bid on these items when it goes live.
Harvest Celebration & Potluck
Each fall since 2005 the Powder River Basin Resource Council community welcomes one and all to join the fun at our annual Harvest Celebration & Potluck in the Sheridan/Buffalo area. There is something for everyone: great music, bountiful and fabulous home-cooked food (Powder River provides a locally sourced meat dish, then attendees load the buffet laden with delicious, locally grown and prepared dishes), enticing raffle prizes, and a spirited auction of “Pies by Guys.” This is the time for friends and neighbors to rub elbows, enjoy friendly conversation, and savor good food. Adults and children alike: all are welcome!
Stayed tuned for information on upcoming events.
