Mining Town of Kirwin: A Look at Geology, Ecology, and Historical Perspectives

Saturday, August 6, 2022

Tour the historic mining town of Kirwin. This year the tour includes a presentation on the geology of the area by Wyoming State Geologist, Erin Campbell, plus a look at historic newspaper articles and plein air painters throughout the historic town. The tour leaves the Museums at 8:30 am. The Museums recommend guests travel in a high-clearance vehicle and bring lawn chairs, lunch, sunscreen/sun protection, and plenty of water. Because we are a staff of two we cannot organize ride sharing prior to the event although we do encourage it and will ask for any possibilities the morning of. 


This program was made possible by a grant by the Wyoming Humanities and the generosity of the Shoshone National Forest Service.
