The Conservation Fund

Conservation Fund Established by the Butler Family

The passion of folks in the bighorn sheep world never ceases to amaze us at the WY-WSF. Gary Butler, life member #280, recipient of the Ron Ball Award, and former Wyoming Game and Fish Department habitat guru/bighorn fanatic, approached us in 2015 with a proposal to establish a permanent bighorn sheep conservation fund. Interest from the fund would be used to finance bighorn sheep conservation in perpetuity. We were elated!!  By January 2021 the fund had grown to over $420,000 allowing us to fund projects and gift youth life memberships from our interest earnings.
