Art’s Contribution to the Conservation of Public Lands and National Forests in the West

August 25 @ 8:00 am - August 29 @ 5:00 pm

The Buffalo Bill Center of the West, the National Museum of Forest Service History, and the Library of Congress is offering a free professional development workshop focusing on the question “How did art drive the American conservation movement and the development of National Forests and public lands in the west?” In this unique workshop, participants will focus on art as primary sources including photographs, advertising posters, original artworks, images, and object databases.

  • Learn how to access, save, and present primary sources and additional resources from the Library of Congress, Buffalo Bill Center of the West, and National Museum of Forest Service History
  • Create products such as lesson plans, activities, and supplementary curriculum that can be used with students
  • Collaborate and network with teachers across the country.

The workshop will take place both at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, WY and also in the beautiful Paradise Valley in Emigrant, Montana. Travel stipends are available.

Apply here to participate in the workshop. For additional information, contact Gretchen Henrich, Director of the Interpretive Education Division.
