Historian Kylie McCormick present “The Wyoming State Flag and The Women Who Made it Fly” on July 20, 7 pm at the Pioneer Museum in Lander as part of the Wyoming Community Bank Discovery Speakers Series.
Wyoming has long been a geologist's delight, thanks to the diversity of its geological history and the abundant bedrock exposures that our dry climate and scarce vegetation make accessible. Not surprisingly, rock and mineral collecting in Wyoming is a rewarding experience for the same reasons. And Fremont County is at the heart of it all. Stan Grove, current president of the Riverton Mineral and Gem Society, takes us on a survey of rockhounding possibilities in and around Fremont County, from fossils to a variety of minerals and lapidary materials.
The Dubois Museum will host PhD Matthew Brueseke for July 6: 7pm @ Dubois Museum: “The Snake River plain - Yellowstone volcanic province (USA): links between bonanza gold-silver mineral deposits, extensional tectonics, and the Yellowstone hotspot” on July 6th at 7pm for this Wyoming Community Bank Discovery Speakers program.
Come learn about local wildlife with Rene Schell, an expert from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. This interactive event will allow kids to get up close with various specimens from the Riverton area as well as a live educational owl!
