Ideas to Inspire™ (i2i™) explores inspiration, song writing and self expression through programs, workshops, individual instruction and public events. Through our academic partners we strive to augment the core curriculum standards with our imaginative approach to learning. All i2i experiences promote curiosity and yield tangible creative rewards.
Ideas to Inspire™ programming and events for children in Casper WY are made possible by Discover, the Natrona County School District’s enrichment program ( Discover brings world-class enrichment opportunities to students right in their classrooms while their teachers engage in professional development. The program helps reduce the number of in-service days or substitute teachers used in the district, and it provides students the chance to experience hands-on learning and see once-in-a-lifetime presentations.

The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center is a cooperative partnership between the US Dept. of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the National Historic Trails Center Foundation, and the City of Casper WY. The Trails Center interprets the significant role of the area’s historic trails in the history of the United States, and seeks to promote public understanding of both America’s western Native cultures and historic westward expansion while highlighting BLM’s role as active stewards of public lands.
