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!

CSI: Casper Seasonal Interpreters

This temporary exhibit explores the mysteries and wonders of Wyoming through the creative eyes of our seasonal interpreters. "CSI: Casper Seasonal Interpreters" will be available during normal business hours from October 3 through November 28. This exhibit’s goal is to connect participants with public lands, and in turn with America’s natural and cultural heritage.

According to the Casper Seasonal Interpreters, “we came with fresh eyes and perspectives to see, learn, and share our love of history. Our free exhibit features photographic images and thoughtful text that will stir the imagination of both young and old. It is our great pleasure to share our experiences and adventures, as well as the many inspirational stories of pioneers who came west. It is our hope that this exhibit will paint a picture of what we, as seasonal Interpretive Park Rangers have experienced this summer, and hopefully we will be able to capture your attention by sharing these encounters!”
