University Offers Free Classes in Sheridan

Saturday U comes back to Sheridan next weekend. That’s the free day of college classes offered by the University of Wyoming.

One of the presenters for the classes will be Harold Bergman who’s been a professor in the university’s zoology and physiology department for nearly 50 years, and for the past couple as the director of the university’s research station at Grand Teton National Park. So, as part of his class, he’ll be talking about the research center and the work being done there.

During his recent interview that aired live on Sheridan Media’s Public Pulse show, he went on to speak specifically about how he thinks learning about the research center can help expand the courses at Sheridan College’s Spear-O-Wigwam mountain campus in the Big Horns.

Saturday U will be held on Aug. 8, from 8:30 to 12:30 in the morning, in the lodge on the Spear-O-Wigwam campus in the Big Horn Mountains above Sheridan. The other classes to be presented during the morning will be one on the Early Paleoindian Lifeways in the High Rockies, and the other, Arts Activity in Wyoming and Its Impact. The lodge is located about 28 miles from Sheridan on the northeastern edge of Park Reservoir.
