(Sweetwater County, Wyo. - March 23, 2023)     The Sweetwater County Historical Museum in Green River hosted a visit on Wednesday from a group of middle-school students engaged in a special research project.

The ten 7th and 8th grade students from the American Academy of Innovation, a charter school in South Jordan, Utah, are studying John Wesley Powell’s epic 1,000-mile 1869 and 1871 expeditions down the Green and Colorado Rivers and through the Grand Canyon. They spent the afternoon examining the museum’s extensive series of Powell exhibits and listening to a presentation from Public Engagement Coordinator Aidan Brady.

Educators, parents, and parent-teacher groups who are interested in learning more about museum programs for students Grades K - 12 are encouraged to contact Brady at (307) 872-6435 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
