The Shoshone River Canyon, located in Cody, is a prominent Wyoming historical marker that tells the geologic stories of the vast surrounding area. Join Cody Middle School science teacher Rich Davis for a rafting trip down the winding river to explore and learn about the beauty and breadth of this great outdoor classroom.
The field trip is designed for students ages 11–15 and takes place July 25; however, there is an alternative session scheduled for the 27 in the event of bad weather on the original date. The trip convenes at the Center of the West at 9 a.m., and the group is scheduled to return at 3 p.m. Students should be sure to bring a water bottle, sunscreen, and a lunch.
Space is limited, so advanced registration is required for all participants; individuals interested in attending the trip can visit tickets.centerofthewest.org and click “Floating through Time” to purchase tickets. The cost of the field trip is $30 per student for Buffalo Bill Center of the West members and $35 for non-members.
Scholarships are available; for more information, contact Emily Buckles, Interpretive Specialist for Programs and Natural Science Educator, at [email protected] or call her at 307-578-4110.
