Mediation Program Print

The Wyoming Agricultural & Natural Resource Mediation Program offers a process to assist Wyoming citizens in resolving their disputes in a way that is voluntary, confidential, low-cost and time-saving.

Mediation is a process that helps disputing parties come together and have an open, honest and confidential discussion about the issues. A trained mediator helps the parties explore options that are available to them and find an end to the conflict through mutually agreed upon solutions. The mediator does not act as a judge, deciding who is right or wrong. The parties themselves control the result of the mediation and any agreement that is developed. Mediation is another tool to help agricultural producers and natural resource managers make wise decisions.

The Wyoming Agriculture & Natural Resource Mediation Program can assist producers and land managers in a wide variety of issues including:

  • USFS grazing permit disputes
  • Ag credit issues
  • USDA adverse decisions
  • Neighbor/neighbor conflicts
  • Ag family estate planning disputes
  • Easement/access issues
  • Ag business disputes
  • and more!

If you are involved in a conflict and wondering if mediation is right for you, please contact Lucy Pauley (information below). All inquiries about mediation are confidential.
