The Buffalo Municipal Watershed Good Neighbor Agreement is the second agreement in Wyoming designed to protect and restore a municipal watershed.

Covering over 38,000 acres, this agreement between Bighorn National Forest and Wyoming State Forestry Division, Wyoming Game & Fish, and multiple other partners is currently in phase two of a multi-phase, cross-boundary Good Neighbor project which includes, fuels reduction by mechanical and hand methods, prescribed burning, aspen restoration, beaver dam analogue construction, road management and maintenance, and commercial timber harvest.
