The Werner Wildlife Museum will join forces with the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center to bring back the popular Summer Animal House for elementary-aged children during the summer months on the second Thursday of each month.

The first Animal House will be held on June 13 and will take a look at “Bird Beaks.” On July 11, children will discover “How Smokey Bear Saves Wildlife.” The series will conclude on August 8 with “Bats, Bats, Bats.”

Naturalists Mike Bardgett, Lance Thorup, and Rob Swanson will lead Animal House, and two sessions for each topic will be held at 12:30-1 and again from 1:15-1:45 p.m.

All Animal House presentations are designed for elementary school children and their families, but all are welcome. Due to the popularity of Animal House, reservations are appreciated, but walk-ins are never turned away.

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. To find out more about Summer Animal House or to make reservations, call 307-235-2108 or email
