While it is true that Wyoming has had a rather wet 2017, water in this state is usually scarce. That is why, if you are a land owner of any sort, you need to know your water rights, according to a local organization.

The Bomber Mountain Civic Center, 58 North Adams Ave, Buffalo, WY, is hosting three classes to teach you what you need to know.
