Enhancement Contributions

Help us to maintain these fine exhibits!

Help us reach our goals!

All exhibits are owned by the Foundation, and we rely on donations to help enhance and maintain these exhibits. If you have any questions regarding the enhancements for which we are raising funds, please stop by the Foundation office today. If you would like to donate to the future enhancements of the National Historic Trails Center, click the link below.

Our newest goal is to replace the giant Wyoming Map!  This map suffered sun damage prior to the tinting of the southeastern facing windows here at the Center.  It's so important because visitors use this map at a launching point to head out on the trail to visit actual sites.  Interpreters spend lots of time showing our guests from near and far just exacting where in Wyoming the ruts, graves, mountain passes, iconic landmarks and more are located!  Please consider contributing to this project!

  New Scrim in the Mormon Handcart Cold Room Theater
The scrim in the Cold Room theater of the Mormon Handcart Gallery was vandalized and in need of repair. The Foundation ordered new material, and Carol Thorup volunteered to sew the hems and pockets to make this piece ready for installation. Installation is COMPLETE! It looks wonderful! Maintenance is an important part of keeping world class exhibits ready for our visitors! Many THANKS to Jared Fleming who maintains this facility and Lance & Carol Thorup who generously donate their time!
  Volunteer Luncheon was a HUGE success!
We celebrated the many fine folks who volunteer their time here at the Trails Center on Saturday, October 13 as the snow rolled into town. A feast from HQ BBQ and cake made with love by Jean Smart at Ridley's bakery filled our bellies, and Jason Vlcan presented a magnificent slideshow highlighting the wonderful adventures our volunteers enjoyed this past year! Come volunteer with us! We promise fun and crazy weather at the very least!
