Learn how wildlife winter
“Preparing for Winter” is the title for the November Werner Wildlife Study Series Thursday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m.
If you have ever wondered how animals survive Wyoming’s harsh winters, plan to join naturalist Mike Bardgett for a look into what it takes for winter survival.
According to India Hayford, Bardgett is a member of the Choctaw tribe and the Audubon Society. He has been a volunteer and popular speaker at the Werner Wildlife Museum since 2015. Bardgett, who obtained his B.S. in wildlife management from the University of Wyoming, worked for the Bureau of Land Management, Wyoming State Parks, and the Natrona County School District #1. Bardgett now works for the BLM at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center.
“Preparing for Winter” 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 235-2108 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
