CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - In a story July 26 about Milward Simpson stepping down as director of the Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources, The Associated Press reported erroneously in one reference the name of an organization that he is going to work for. He’s taking a job as Wyoming director of the Nature Conservancy, not the Natural Conservancy.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Milward Simpson resigns as head of Wyoming Parks

Milward Simpson resigns as head of Wyoming Parks and Cultural Resources to take a job with the Nature Conservancy

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Milward Simpson is stepping down as director of the Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources.



Gov. Matt Mead announced Tuesday that Simpson is leaving the director’s post that he’s held for the past 10 years.

Simpson is taking a job as director of the Wyoming chapter of the Nature Conservancy.

Simpson started working for the state as manager of the Wyoming Arts Council in 2004 and became director of State Parks and Cultural Resources in 2006.

Mead says Simpson has been a strong promoter of Wyoming artists and has been instrumental in making the state parks some of the best in the country.

Anne Pendergast chairs the Wyoming chapter of the Nature Conservancy. She says the group is thrilled to have Simpson lead its conservation work.
