Common Outdoor Ground is a community organization providing volunteer support for the sustainability of outdoor spaces in southeast Wyoming.
COG partners with existing groups and land managers to work toward common goals, such as:
Supporting access to public lands and multiple use of those lands
Supporting and expanding opportunities for outdoor recreation
Facilitating the organization and training of volunteers
Assisting land managers and partner organizations in meeting natural resource objectives
Promoting responsible and informed outdoor ethics
What We've Achieved
In 2018 alone, COG has helped coordinate 10 volunteer events on public lands, partnering with the U.S. Forest Service, Laramie BikeNet and the University of Wyoming. We’ve built and maintained trails, cleaned up trash, created campsites, and installed signs on trails and Forest Service roads.
Nearly 300 volunteers have participated in our events, working a total of 830 hours. That labor is valued at $20,493!
