We work to create new recreation opportunities in Sheridan County for public benefit. Access to abundant recreation opportunities is critical to cultivating healthy communities. Whether it be hiking, mountain biking, boating, birding, or just having access to a beautiful and safe place to spend time with your family outside, new recreation opportunities are a win win for residents and visitors. Making it easy for families to get outside and recreate also connects the next generation with the outdoors and makes Sheridan County a more desirable place to live.
