Wyoming State Museum receives grant to fund creation of wildlife conservation education trunks

The Wyoming State Museum received a grant from the Wyoming Wildlife Foundation through its Wyoming Youth for Natural Resources Grant. This generous grant will support the museum in two important ways.

First, the grant will fund the creation of two separate wildlife conservation education trunks. These trunks will teach Wyoming students the importance of wildlife conservation, both at home in Wyoming and around the world.

Each trunk is filled with skulls, skins, claws, antlers and much more with many amazing animals. Additionally, the trunks contain animal trade items confiscated from poachers and traffickers by the US Fish and Wildlife Service. These trunks are available free of charge to all teachers.

The grant also supports the museum by funding the shipment of these trunks to teachers across the state. Support from the Wyoming Wildlife Foundation means that the trunks can be sent to teachers who would not normally be able to collect the trunks at the Wyoming State Museum in Cheyenne.

The Wyoming State Museum thanks the Wyoming Wildlife Foundation for its generous support of our educational mission. For more information on requesting a trunk for your school, please visit the museum’s website at https://wyomuseum.wyo.gov.
