Currently Vacant



Celebrated annually in September, Wyoming Archaeology Awareness Month (WAAM) consists of a series of statewide activities and programs devoted to discussing archaeological issues and to educating the public about the importance of preserving and protecting Wyoming’s archaeological heritage. The centerpiece of WAAM is the poster we produce every year. It is distributed statewide, nationally, and internationally to more than 3,000 people and organizations. Wyoming posters have been honored with numerous awards in the State Archaeology Week Poster Contest sponsored by the Society for American Archaeology’s Public Education Committee and Council of Affiliated Societies.

State Historic Preservation Plan



In 2014, the Wyoming State Historic Preservation Office began making preparations to revise the 2007-2015 Historic Preservation Plan. The plan was developed with input from our preservation partners, stakeholders, and the public. We appreciate all of you who participated in the planning process by responding to our plan revision survey, attending one of our public meetings, or providing review comments on the draft plan. The final plan was approved by the National Park Service’s historic preservation planning program in January 2016. Wyoming’s Comprehensive Statewide Historic Preservation Plan guides the actions and sets the priorities for historic preservation activity in Wyoming through 2026.
