The Wyoming Monuments and Markers Stewardship Program is comprised of concerned people committed to protecting and preserving Wyoming's rich cultural heritage through the monitoring of interpretive signage and monuments. Professional heritage/cultural resource specialists and trained volunteers work together to monitor the state's monuments, markers, and wayside interpretive exhibits. They add to the existing documentary record, add a regular presence that deters looting and vandalism, and update files that aid in furthering the interpretation of Wyoming's history.

The primary purposes of the Wyoming Monuments and Markers Stewardship Program are:

  1. To protect and monitor existing monuments, markers, and wayside interpretive exhibits.
  2. To locate existing monuments, markers, and wayside interpretive exhibits.
  3. To report on the condition of existing monuments, markers, and wayside interpretive exhibits.
  4. To assist with permanent management of monitored sites.
  5. To assist with determining future interpretive needs in the area.
  6. To increase public awareness of local historic sites, events, and people commemorated through the Monuments and Markers Program.
