Wyoming:  Camp Guernsey was awarded the 2010 Secretary of Defense Environmental Award for cultural resources management .

The camp has identified 975 cultural sites. Included are:

Prehistoric teepee circles
Rock shelters
Pictographs
Wagon wheel ruts and emigrant grave sites from the Oregon Trail.

More than 300 sites are legally protected because they are important to American Indian tribes or qualify for the National Register of Historic Places.

Artifacts are stored at a University of Wyoming repository where tribes and researchers may access them.  Eighteen tribes and Camp Guernsey officials also meet every year
.

Camp Guernsey is a National Guard training base. It covers about 100 square miles and is operated by the Wyoming Army National Guard. The Wyoming Air National Guard and units from the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines also train there.
