Just a Weekend in January

What’s Happening, This Weekend, in Lander

1/12 – 1/14 2018

When I say that Lander has a lot of events going on for a small town in Wyoming…I mean it!



Lander Valley Wetland Preserve Meet and Greet

Lander Bar

Happy New Year from the Lander Valley Wetland Preserve!

Please join us to learn more about the LVWP, and launch the new year with a new beer.
This event is organized in order to raise awareness about our community Wetland Preserve, and to raise money for local events and education that bring community together in ways that spark conservation, creativity and learning. We will be auctioning off artwork from local elementary and middle school students who attended our Wetland Warrior event, co-sponsored by the Lander Children Museum. Proceeds from this auction will fund the student’s vision for a project of his/her own design on the Wetland.

Please come and be a part of this special event and help support the creation of a healthy Wetland Preserve surrounded by community. Thanks to Lander Brewing for creating the *Red Wing Bomber* specially for the Wetland Preserve, which will be on tap at the Lander Bar and Cowfish while supplies last. A portion of the cost of each beer sold at the event will be given back to the Wetland Preserve thanks to the generous donation and partnership with Lander Brewing.
Don’t miss out!
