Kids: Explore, Keep Learning All Summer in Wind River Country

Three museums in Wyoming’s Wind River Country/Fremont County host opportunities to learn all year long. The Children’s Exploration Series gives local and visiting children the opportunity to explore Wyoming’s Wind River Country and to keep learning outside the classroom year-round.

The Children’s Exploration Series, sponsored by McDonalds, offers experiential learning events across the county. Topics focus on cultural history and Wind River Country’s natural environment, including geology, archaeology, Native American culture, agriculture and pioneer history.

All three Fremont County Museums in the county hold events in the Children’s Exploration Series. Be sure to check the hosting museums’ calendar for the most up-to-date information about an event.
