“Wind River Explorer Guide: your passport to Art, Culture, History & Science”
The Fremont County Museums are proud to announce their latest project in conjunction with our partner organizations throughout Fremont County.
The Wind River Explorer Guide is a souvenir booklet that can be purchased at each of the participating organizations. Similar to the National Park Service Passport program, only exclusive to the Wind River area, the booklet contains a page for each participating organization with their logo, contact information and a paragraph about what there is to do and see at that site. Each page in the book contains space for ink stamps and stickers that can be obtained at the individual sites and are unique to each site. Booklets can be obtained at each of the 16 sites represented in the booklet.
Students in Fremont County study Wyoming history in 4th grade and take field trips to museums and historic sites throughout the County in the spring. The Explorer Guide was distributed free to 4th grade students in Fremont County this year in time to take with them on their adventures around Wind River Country.
Participating sites include the Dubois Museum, Sinks Canyon State Park, Wyoming Game & Fish Regional Office in Lander, Fremont County Pioneer Museum, Riverton Museum, Museum of the American West, Tap Tapley Gallery at the Historic Noble Hotel, National Bighorn Sheep Center, Louis Lake Lodge, South Pass City State Historic Site, Children’s Center for Art Technology & Science, Wind River Heritage Center, Fremont County Pioneer Association, Lander Children’s Museum, Fremont County Libraries and the Lander Area Chamber of Commerce.
Scott Goetz, Central Director for Fremont County Museums said, “The Guide is meant to be something that people, especially kids, can keep for a long time and use to collect stickers and stamps associated with each of their visits to the sites. It is a program that we hope will encourage families to explore all of the museums, historic sites & cultural centers that are available in Fremont County and encourage their kids to learn about the area they live in.”
