WSGA's Environmental Stewardship Program & Award, in partnership with the Wyoming Department of Agriculture, recognizes Wyoming cattlemen whose natural resource stewardship practices  contribute to the environment and enhance productivity and profitability. Each year a different Wyoming ranch is chosen for these qualities after applying. By the ranches choice, a day will be set aside during the summer to celebrate Wyoming's for most land stewards: ranchers.
