On Thursday, June 8, the first of three “Summer Animal House for Children” events will be held. The topic is “Bison in a Box.”

“Bison in a Box” will provide a fun learning experience as children will not only see the bones of an American bison but will try their hand at putting the bones back together in their proper order.

The free program, specially created for elementary school children, is taught by naturalist Mike Bardgett and Werner Wildlife Assistant Eileen Lemm. “Bison in a Box” will begin in the museum’s backyard at noon. Participants are encouraged to bring a sack lunch to enjoy following the approximately 30-minute program.

Reservations for large groups are appreciated, but walk-in families and individuals are more than welcome. For additional information, call the Werner at 307-235-2108 or drop by 405 East 15th Street, Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

From Bison to Triceratops - All of Wyoming's Official Things

Every state in our nation has chosen things that represent the state in one way or another to be official state things. Like a flower, or animal. Wyoming is no different.

The Equality State, or the Cowboy State, depending on which state slogan you want to go with, has a state flower. But did you know we also have a state tree and a state fish? Yes, we even have a state code.

To be an official thing, a member of the state legislature must write and submit a bill to the legislature declaring that a thing will be the official state thing. Then the legislature votes to pass the bill, or not, if it passes, the governor signs the bill into law and we have a new official state thing.

Here is what we have so far, all of Wyoming's official things. Now you can win big on Wyo Trivia Night if that's a thing that exists.
