The Werner Wildlife Museum will join forces with the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center to bring back the popular “Summer Animal House” with naturalist Mike Bardgett.

Has your child ever wondered where that dandelion in your yard came from? Or that basket of flowers. Where did they come from? Seeds are the answer for most plants. But how do they get there? Depending on the seed, it is a fascinating story that can involve insects, animals, the wind, rain, and even people. Children will find out how seeds travel to get to their destinations during “Seeds: How They Travel” Thursday, July 8.

Three sessions will be held at 12:30-1, 1:15-1:45, and 2-2:30 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, according to India Hayford, museum assistant.

The Werner Wildlife Museum is located off the Casper College campus at 405 E. 15th Street and is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. To find out more about “Summer Animal House” or make reservations, call 307-235-2108 or email indiahayford@caspercollege.edu.
