Trails Center Offers Free Musical Performance by Riders In The Sky


Say farewell to the last days of summer vacation by attending a free performance by Riders In The Sky honoring the Tenth Anniversary of the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC). The two-time Grammy Award-winning group has been entertaining fans of western music for 30 years.

“We are proud to say thank you to Casper and Wyoming for ten meaningful years of historic reflection, by offering two free performances by Riders In The Sky on Saturday, Aug. 11, in the theater at the NHTIC,” said NHTIC Director Mike Abel.

The Riders In The Sky will play at 11:30 a.m. and again at 2:30 p.m. at the NHTIC, located at 1501 North Poplar in Casper. Each performance will last approximately 45 minutes. Seating is limited and both performances are free on a first-come, first-served basis.

“We are grateful for the long-standing support that we have received from Rocky Mountain Nature Association and ARTCORE in making this fun program available for families and enhancing our interpretive programs for all visitors,” said Abel.

For additional information please contact the Bureau of Land Management’s National Historic Trails Interpretive Center at (307) 261-7780.

The NHTIC is a part of the BLM's National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS). The areas of the NLCS are specifically designed to conserve, protect and restore the exceptional scientific, natural, cultural, ecological, historical, and recreation values of these treasured landscapes.

The NHTIC is a public-private partnership between the BLM and the National Historic Trails Center Foundation. The facility is located at 1501 N. Poplar Street, Casper, Wyo. The Center is currently operating on summer hours, and is open daily, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
