The June edition of Casper College’s Werner Wildlife Series will explore taxidermy on Thursday, June 20, at 7 p.m.

Master taxidermist JR Butler will present “The Art and Science of Taxidermy.” The former president of the Wyoming Association of Taxidermy Artists will provide a brief look into the world of taxidermy. Butler will then give a step-by-step seminar on the process of putting together a shoulder mount and describe the various ways to show expression in a mount. He will also discuss the true art required to make a piece stand out.

The Werner Wildlife Study Series is held in the Africa-Arctic Room of the Werner Wildlife Museum. The family-friendly event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the museum at 307-235-2108 or contact Dalene Hodnett, director of museums, at dalene.hodnett@caspercollege.edu.
