This month’s Werner Wildlife Study Series will look at “The Sagebrush Sea” Thursday, June 17, at 5:30 p.m.

The talk, presented by Museum Assistant India Hayford, will look at Wyoming’s sagebrush steppe. “The sagebrush steppe is a harsh, high, open country of rolling hills, broad ridges, low mountains, and high elevation basins,” noted Ms. Hayford. Nearly half of Wyoming’s total acreage is within the sagebrush steppe, and a large variety of flora and fauna inhabit that ecosystem.

Ms. Hayford is a former range conservationist who currently works for the Werner Wildlife Museum and writes The Howl, the museum’s quarterly wildlife newsletter. During her presentation, viewers will learn about the sagebrush steppe and the plants and animals that call it home.

The program will appear via Zoom. Attendees can access links to the program via the museum’s Facebook page at facebook.com/wernerwildlife. For more information, call 307-235-2108. The Werner Wildlife Museum is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
