Boysen, Sinks Canyon state parks receive $5,000 gift

Jun 5, 2014 - From staff reports

Funds will go toward the Kids eXtreme programs.

Devon Energy recently donated $5,000 to four Wyoming State Parks and their Kids eXtreme programs.

The parks include Keyhole State Park, Boysen State Park, Sinks Canyon State Park and Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site, all located in counties where Devon has operations.

The Devon donation will be used by the four parks in various ways. The money Boysen State Park received will go toward the Kids eXtreme Youth Fishing Derby.

The money Sinks Canyon State Park received will be used to complete the Kids' Corner Treehouse project in the Sinks Canyon Visitor Center. The treehouse will have viewing scopes that will allow youth to view bird and animal mounts in the facility and their living counterparts in the park.
