The popular Werner Wildlife Study Series is returning to the Werner Wildlife Museum Thursday, Sept. 17, after a hiatus due to COVID-19.

Casper College Director of Museums, Patti Finkle, and art history instructor Valerie Innella Maiers, Ph.D., will present “The History of Museum Collecting: From Wonder Cabinets to the Werner Wildlife Museum” beginning at 7 p.m.

Innella Maiers, who teaches art history and museum studies at Casper College, also directs the Casper College Humanities Festival and Demorest Lecture Series. Finkle began working at the college in 2010 shortly after graduating from Texas Tech University with a master’s degree in museum science. In 2015 she was named as director of museums at the school. At the Werner Wildlife Museum, she has helped clean the taxidermized specimens, develop educational programming, and update exhibits.

“The History of Museum Collecting: From Wonder Cabinets to the Werner Wildlife Museum” is free and open to the public. The Werner Wildlife Museum is located off the Casper College campus at 405 E. 15th Street. For more information, call the museum at 307-235-2108 or email indiahayford@caspercollege.edu.
