SC to host presentation on fossil discovery @ Sheridan College
Mar 8 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Museum of Discovery lecture series will feature a presentation titled “Grasslands to Well Pad — Fossil Discovery During Construction Monitoring” on March 8 at 7 p.m.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

Paleontologists from SWCA Environmental Consultants conducted initial surveys for a proposed well pad development in eastern Wyoming. The survey area was nearly entirely vegetated, and it presented few bedrock exposures. Though sparse, observed fossils consisted of heavily weathered bone fragments. A year later a paleontologist was on site full time to monitor ground disturbing activities.

Initial discoveries included isolated skeletal elements from hadrosaur and ceratopsian dinosaurs and turtles. Then three closely associated bones were exposed in a channel sandstone horizon. An exploratory excavation revealed that the elements were really one specimen — a partially complete skull of cf. Triceratops horridus.

Because this project followed proper mitigation protocol, a new specimen of Triceratops and associated geographic and stratigraphic data will be available for study.

Georgia Knauss, who will give the presentation, is the paleontology lead at SWCA Environmental Consultants based in Sheridan; and works as a mitigation paleontologist.

Sheridan College is located at 3059 Coffeen Ave.

Lecture to focus on genomics revolution @ Sheridan College Science Museum/Mohns Center.
Apr 5 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The discovery of polymerase chain reaction ushered in a new era of biological research by instantly providing tools to study organisms at unprecedented depths. In the ensuing decades, the advent of affordable and high throughput DNA sequencing technology has revolutionized a large number of biological disciplines.  

This genomic revolution aided by informatics tools has impacted our lives in a multitude of ways. Chhatre will discuss examples of the application of various genomic technologies in medicine, mitigation of global climate change, understanding organismal evolution and designing strategies for ecosystem conservation.  

Chhatre grew up in India fascinated by the natural world and with a curiosity to understand what makes it work. Eventually narrowing down his focus to long-living forest trees, he adopted population genomics and bioinformatics tools to understand how they adapt to their environment.  

The event is free and open to the public.

Library to host program on railroad history @ Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library
May 10 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — On Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library, railroad expert and historian James Ehernberger will present an educational program on the history of railroads in northeast Wyoming.

Railroad construction during the 1880s was greater in the West than any other decade in the history of our country. In 1887, the first Burlington line reached Wyoming and the Grand Island and Northern Wyoming Railroad built westward in 1890 to Moorcroft, in 1891 to Gillette and to Sheridan on Nov. 26, 1892. In 1893 and 1894, the line was completed northward to a connection with the Northern Pacific for service into Billings.

The livestock trade was one of the great revenue sources for railroads during that time. Herds of Texas Longhorn cattle were driven north and pastured on the rich Wyoming grasslands, with railroads playing a vital role in this movement of livestock.

Ehernberger, a Cheyenne resident since 1950, has been researching Wyoming railroad history for nearly 60 years. He worked for Union Pacific railroad for 34 years and has authored or co-authored more than 50 books. He has also been featured in numerous magazine articles, as well as several PBS presentations.

The Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library is located at 335 W. Alger St.

Eclipse speaker to present at SC @ Sheridan College
May 15 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

SHERIDAN — How far would you travel to see a total eclipse of the sun?

Tim Slater, the Wyoming Excellence in Higher Education Endowed Chair in Science Education at the University of Wyoming, has traveled into deeply rural Africa to catch a glimpse of the disappearing sun. In May, he will travel across Wyoming to visit schools, public libraries and community centers to build awareness, generate excitement and help children, parents, teachers and community leaders to prepare for the upcoming total eclipse of the sun.

Slater is scheduled to speak about the nature of eclipses in the Sheridan area Monday, including visiting with Sheridan High School students and teachers at 1:45 p.m., and giving a public talk from 6-7:30 p.m. at Sheridan College.

In his lectures, Slater describes how to safely observe the Aug. 21 eclipse of the sun and uses scientific digital visualization simulations to explain why scientists from all over the world are coming to Wyoming to observe this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Visible from much of Wyoming and known as the Great North American Solar Eclipse, this rarely visible sky event occurs midday Aug. 21.

In 1878, a gang of outlaws from the Powder River country entered Carbon County, attempted a train robbery and subsequently perpetrated the murder of two law enforcement officers. Big Nose George Parott was a principal figure in the gang and successfully avoided justice for the crime until 1880 when he was arrested in Montana.

This program discusses the crime, events leading up to it and the aftermath.

Dr. Mark E. Miller, a retired Wyoming state archaeologist, will lead the program. His great-grandfather, Ike C. Miller, was Carbon County sheriff at the time Big Nose George was hanged in Rawlins by a group of angry citizens.
