A Trail Kiosk on a Popular Lander Trail Ensures Enjoyment for All

  • Local Champion: Central Wyoming College Foundation
  • Date Funded: November 3, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $9,000

Despite Lander’s popularity as a destination for outdoor enthusiasts, the Alpine Science Institute remains relatively undiscovered by tourists. It’s location close to town, as well as recent trail updates, have made this a desirable spot for locals. Trouble is, residents starting using this trail system without knowledge of trail etiquette, what activities the trails were designed for, and where to park. This has lead to the trails being torn up and littered with dog waste and other messes. Further,
the area has historically and culturally important aspects that need to shared with the wider public as well. Staff at the Institute came up with a plan that could address all of these issues: A kiosk at the appropriate parking lot that hosts a bike station, doggie bags, maps of the trail system, and shares important historical and cultural information. The kiosk would also indicate the location of restrooms and parking and outline proper etiquette. LOR’s funding will support the map and sign design and kiosk installation.
