Coffee & Curators
Join us for refreshments and a curator talk that features the Draper Natural History Museum.
The Story Behind the Exhibit: The Saga of Yellowstone Grizzly Bear 104
Behind every good natural history exhibit is a good story! The Grizzly Bear exhibit in the Draper Natural History Museum’s Mountain Meadow Environment is one of the Center’s most popular exhibits. It features interpretation on Yellowstone grizzly bear ecology and natural history, including a five-part video presentation on avoiding conflicts with bears. It also features two grizzly bear mounted specimens that convey a compelling story of their own. One of these bears, Grizzly Bear 104, is one of the most celebrated animals ever to live in the Greater Yellowstone region. Join wildlife ecologist and Draper Museum Senior and Founding Curator, Dr. Charles Preston, to learn the saga of Grizzly Bear 104, and how she came to the Draper Museum.
Our Coffee & Curators series invites members to enjoy coffee, refreshments, and each other as one of our curators speaks about a topic inspired by the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s permanent collections, including special up-close or behind-the-scenes access.
Space for this members event is limited and reservations are required. Call 307-578-4008 or e-mail us to reserve your seat. Meet us at the main entrance.
