as a kind of human hair cosplay wig for black women, it is more light, soft and delicate and looks more transparent than normal lace, which can melt into our skin more perfectly, which makes the hairline more invisible and undetectable.

Explore the world of the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep! Our central display, “Sheep Mountain,” is a 16-feet-tall diorama that recreates summer and winter habitats of bighorn sheep. This exhibit includes plants and other wildlife that share bighorn sheep habitats. Our dioramas include full-body taxidermy mounts of grizzly bears, marmots, wolves, golden eagles, mule deer, chipmunks, pikas, coyotes, mountain goats, bushy-tailed woodrats, mountain lions, and more!

Other Center exhibits include hands-on interactive displays that will engage, educate, and entertain visitors of all ages! Feel the weight of a mature bighorn ram’s horn; identify wildlife tracks, scat, and fur samples; and listen to Dubois locals telling their own bighorn sheep stories. Center exhibits also examine predator/prey relationships, explain the survival strategy of migration, and help visitors see the mountain environment through the eyes of a bighorn sheep. We occasionally have temporary special exhibits in the Ronald W. Ball Memorial Gallery as well as in the main exhibit hall.

Ronald W. Ball Memorial Gallery

In memory of Ronald W. Ball, this gallery honors Ron, who helped create the Wyoming Wild Sheep Foundation through his dedication to bighorn sheep conservation in Wyoming. The gallery hosts a theater space where educational films, temporary special exhibits (including artwork and photography), and educational programs are regularly hosted.

Sheepeater Indian History

The Bighorn Sheep Center also features information about the Sheepeater (also called the Mountain Shoshone) Native Americans. This culture inhabited the Dubois area for thousands of years and had a strong connection with wild sheep. Examine a re-creation of an ancient Sheepeater Indian sheep trap, and make your own drawing of a petroglyph based on an original design that was created hundreds of years ago. See handmade winter boots made from bighorn sheep fur. Ponder the skillful creation of a sheep horn bow, a highly prized possession among the early inhabitants of this area. Part of the Sheepeater display includes a collection of replica stone and bone tools, hand-tanned bighorn sheep hide, and many other items all made with material from bighorn sheep. Our Sheepeater displays are unique to the Bighorn Sheep Center. Come and learn!
