Working with Local Schools
The Buffalo Bill Center of the West helps local schools by providing free field trips to the Center for all Park County schools. This is made possible through the Stephen M. Seay Foundation, and the Bargain Box, an outreach of Christ the Episcopal Church, and other anonymous donors.
This summer the Center named 5th grade students from Westside Elementary in Powell, WY as winners of a project about their visit to Yellowstone. Visit the Draper Natural History Museum’s Seasons of Discovery to view the museum exhibit winner. Click on the image below to view the virtual field trip winner’s project on YouTube.
