LARAMIE – Come celebrate and learn from nature at this year’s Spring Exploration event to be held at Wyoming Territorial Prison State Historic Site on Saturday, April 22, from noon to 4 p.m.
This is a free afternoon of bringing kids and their parents together to learn about our natural environment.
Come see presentations from the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program, featuring live birds of prey, take a bird hike, and investigate insects and owl pellets. Examine skulls and pelts; create animal track rubbings and more.
“Most people associate this site with the Prison and don’t realize we have 197 acres of land filled with animals, birds, and insects,” says Deborah Amend, superintendent. “Spring Exploration is an opportunity to introduce visitors to the different ecosystems and resources here while simultaneously getting excited and curious about nature.”
Partners in education this year include: Wyoming Game and Fish, National Park Service, UW Williams Conservatory, UW Biodiversity Institute, UW Extension Entomology and Wyoming
