CASPER, Wyo. — Audubon Rockies will host a pair of listening sessions in Casper on Sept. 28, with the goal of better understanding what people want out of the group, how to improve involvement and how to better incorporate ways people want to connect to wildlife and the outdoors.

A family option will be held at Racca’s Pizzeria from 5:30 to 7 p.m., and all-you-can-eat pizza and soft drinks will be provided. Children are welcome to the meeting, and free on-site children’s activities will be provided.

From 7:30 to 9 p.m., the group will host a young professionals option at Gruner Bros. Brewing. Two drink tickets will be provided by Audubon Rockies. The young professionals option is intended for those ages 21–34.

Registration is required for attendance, as Audubon Rockies wants to ensure it purchases enough food and beverage tickets for all attending. People can register online here.

Audubon Rockies is the regional office of the National Audubon Society for Colorado, Wyoming and Utah. Using science, outreach and policy, the organization works to holistically address the core threats facing birds in the region.
