$590,000 Total Project Cost – $150,000 to Go
Dubois Anglers Wildlife Group’s “Pete’s Pond Project” was awarded $290,000 toward the construction of a 2-acre pond to be developed on the Town of Dubois Sawmill Site adjacent to the Wind River on the east end town.
DAWGs’ president Larry Lewis said:
“This is huge for us! We have been working on the pond concept for 5 years in cooperation with the Town of Dubois, Wyoming Trout Unlimited, Wyoming Game and Fish Department and Dubois Volunteers Inc. All permits, permissions and preliminary engineering are in place. We are working to raise an additional $150,000 and plan to start excavation work this fall as the balance of funding is raised.”
