August’s Werner Wildlife Study Series will give participants a chance to take an after-hours tour of the museum. “What’s New at the Werner Wildlife Museum: A Guided Tour” will take place Thursday, Aug. 19, at 7 p.m.

Museum Assistant India Hayford will conduct a rare after-hours tour through the museum, sharing the museum’s history and most popular exhibits, as well as a few lesser-known treasures. She will also talk about the renovations that have been taking place since March 2017, when the first color mural, a combination of photography and abstract painting by Vince Edmonton, went up at the museum.

According to Ms. Hayford, Bill Hout, Nate Harris, and Allen Sanchez of the Casper College Maintenance Department worked to put up the final murals this spring. The murals include a magnificent mountain scene that fills the entire east wall of the Wyoming Room and a three-sided exhibit in the riparian bird area that makes visitors feel like they’ve just walked into an autumn afternoon.

“Whether it has been a few weeks or a few years since your last visit to the Werner Wildlife Museum, it’s time to drop by and see the newly completed displays, brand-new exhibit signs, murals, and a newly renovated bird area,” Ms. Hayford said.

The Wildlife Study Series programs are family-friendly and free, and open to the public. 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. For more information, call 307-235-2108 or email indiahayford@caspercollege.edu.
