Trails Center Presents Program: "Overland and Waterways"
A Family Musical Program by Sid Hausman

Join the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) for a family musical program by award winning musician, Sid Hausman, on June 30.

Cowboy poet, historian, and award winning musician and children’s author Sid Hausman will perform a family musical program, Overland and Waterways of the West, on Saturday, June 30 at 6 p.m. at the Trails Center.

This recollection of stories and tunes of the different pathways and methods of travel during the westward migrations of the past 200 years will feature 12 string guitar, banjo, harmonica and other folk instruments along with original songs. Hausman’s songs and stories reflect his experience with ranching in the rural southwest, as well as the influence of Native American and Hispanic culture on the history of the American west. The program is free and open to the public.

The NHTIC first opened on August 9, 2002. The Trails Center will provide a series of programs and activities in celebration of its 10th anniversary throughout August 2012. For more information, contact the Trails 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 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 sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
