The Werner Wildlife Museum will be hosting three free Animal House events for elementary-aged children during the summer months on the second Thursday of each month.

The first Animal House will be held on June 14 and will take a look at “Animal Tracks and Signs.” On July 12, children will “Learn to be a Junior Naturalist.” The series will conclude on August 9 with “Animals of the Frozen North.” Mike Bardgett will lead all three sessions.

Bardgett, who obtained a B.S. from the University of Wyoming in wildlife management and conservation, is a Choctaw tribal member and Audubon Society member. Following his retirement from the Bureau of Land Management, Wyoming State Parks, and the Natrona County School District, Bardgett continues to volunteer his services as a naturalist to the Werner Wildlife Museum.

All presentations, which are free and open to the public, will begin at 12:30 p.m. and last for approximately 30 minutes, according to India Hayford, museum assistant.

Reservations for individuals are appreciated, due to space restraints. Special programs for large groups can also be arranged. The Werner Wildlife Museum is located off the Casper College campus at 405 E. 15th Street and is open from 9 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information call the museum at 307-235-2108.
