Trails Center offers free youth programs every Saturday in October

CASPER, Wyo. – The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center is calling all young explorers to join free youth programs at 10 a.m. every Saturday in October.

On October 16, Hands-on History Club will teach the skill of documenting and reading topographic maps through a creative activity of mapping playdough mountains. The Trails Center’s exciting October lineup also features wagon packing, pioneer pastimes, and life on the trail.

  • October 9: Pioneer Games (30 minutes)
  • October 16: Hands on History Club (1 hour)
  • October 23: Life on the Trail (30 minutes)
  • October 30: Morning Movie – Meek’s Cutoff (2 hours)

While Hands-on History Club classes are geared for children ages seven through eleven years old, all ages are welcome. Students must be accompanied by a chaperone. History Club is free, but reservations are appreciated and strongly encouraged.
