Trails Center Hosts Cornhusk Doll Workshop


The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) is hosting a cornhusk doll workshop on Saturday, Jan. 14.

Experience pioneer amusement first-hand by creating your own cornhusk doll. “We will be using paper ribbon instead of cornhusks to simplify the process,” says interpreter Stacey Moore. “However, the end product looks just like the cornhusk version and is a bit more durable.”

The family-friendly workshop will begin at 10 a.m. in the Edna Kennell Heritage Gallery. The workshop will run approximately an hour. Cost is $2 per adult and children are free but must be accompanied by an adult. Reservations are required.

To sign up for the workshop, please call (307) 261-7780 and ask for Liz or Stacey. Space is limited.

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, WY.



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.
