“Weather Along the Trails”

Lander | Rockies to Tetons

“Weather Along the Trails” September 8, 7pm

The Pioneer Museum in Lander will host this Wyoming Community Bank Discovery Speakers Series program.

Chris Jones from the National Weather Service presents “Weather Along the Trails”. “In the 1840’s and 50s it was estimated nearly one-half million emigrants traveled the Oregon, Mormon, and California trails. Each pioneer had one common, constant companion – the weather. Meteorologist Chris Jones with the National Weather Service will discuss the various challenges the weather posed – spring rains, a drier climate, wind, thunderstorms, and autumn snows – for these brave settlers of the West. A portion of this multimedia presentation will attempt to reconstruct the fateful snow storm encountered by the Willie and Martin Handcart companies.”

This program is free and open to the public.
