Weidner Wildlife Museum

placeholder

The wildlife in the Weidner Wildlife Museum were donated to the College from Rock Springs residents, Roger A. and Jeanne A. Weidner (pictured at right). The Weidners chose to donate their collection, which was assembled over the course of several decades, to the College because they wanted to share it with others. The Weidners believe that "It will help educate the public about these wonderful creatures." The museum opened in September 2002 and houses nearly 125 species of wildlife collected worldwide. This fascinating display of mounted wildlife entertains and educates visitors, excites hunters and often motivates interest in the conservation of outdoor resources.
