A free talk by Bob Richard

Noon–1 p.m.

Join us for the November presentation in our “Local Lore with Bob Richard” series of free talks hosted by our McCracken Research Library.

Bob shares stories from the Sunlight Basin and Crandall Country to the northwest of Cody.

With a wealth of knowledge about the Cody and Yellowstone National Park areas, Bob has a lifetime of stories to share with future generations. The “Local Lore with Bob Richard” series continues monthly throughout the year.

The talks in this series are gathered in this YouTube playlist.

A lifelong Wyoming resident, Richard’s varied experiences are pure West. He worked at guest ranches, guided horse and hunting trips, ranched, and for 37 years owned and operated Grub Steak Expeditions, personally touring thousands of visitors from around the world through Yellowstone and its ecosystem.

Educated at the Universities of Wyoming, Arizona, and California (Fresno), Richard has served as a teacher and school administrator, a decorated United States Marine Corps pilot in Vietnam, and, for 21 years, helped coordinate American Red Cross service and relief activities in the western United States.
