West Center

A free lecture titled “Bats & Bones: What’s New at the Draper” takes place at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s Coe Auditorium on September 1 at 1 p.m., the final episode of the Lunchtime Expedition series in Cody, Wyoming.

This is an in-person conference, but you can also attend virtually by registering at: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_-QtHVfrJTsKNw66U-ifYEg.

During the conference, Draper Museum of Natural History Acting Curator Corey Anco will focus on a unique artist-in-residence program last June featuring Lee “The Boneman” Post. Post worked with museum staff and volunteers, as well as interns, to reconstruct the skeletons of a grizzly bear and a mountain lion. Once the skeletons are completed, the staff works to craft professional mounts for each. Anco explains the process and methods of articulation.

He will then share details of an ambitious new pilot research program that began in July to monitor bats in alpine ecosystems. Wyoming is home to 18 species of bats, 11 of which are listed as species in greatest need of conservation by the Wyoming Game & Fish Department.

“However,” Anco noted, “monitoring bats in remote ecosystems is challenging given the weight of the equipment and the difficulty of moving over rough terrain.” He discusses the goals of the project, as well as the methods employed to monitor the bats, and shares some stories from the first year of this three-year study.
