Displays at the Western Wyoming Community College in Rock Springs, Wyo., are in various locations around the campus and show a Camptosaurus, a plesiosaur, a Stegosaurus, a Triceratops, and a Tyrannosaurus. All these species once inhabited Wyoming, and some of the specimens were collected in state. Admission is free and the college is convenient to travelers on I-80.

The college continues to run archeological field schools each summer, including one on the site of Evanston’s former Chinatown. Visit http://www.wwcc.cc.wy.us/wyo_hist/archfieldschools.htm or contact Dudley Gardner directly at dgardner@wwcc.wy.edu.
