We announce with much excitement the construction of the Beck Learning Center to honor Charley and Sue Beck. Educators that “pioneered” in Torrey Valley from 1922-1958, the Becks planned for the future of their land by selling it to the Wyoming Game & Fish Commission. Torrey Valley is critical bighorn winter range and the base of many of our education programs, “It is due to their tenacity, and their dedication to this land, that it remains in its natural state…” (Lois A. Poteet). The Beck Classroom, a 650 squarefoot addition on the building’s west side will serve as a new education center for school groups, adult conservation programs, and for community collaboration. This project will also meet our strategic plan, providing for a “Kid’s Corner” in our gift shop, additional office space, a kitchenette for groups and events, and increased bathroom and storage space on the East.
“All who enjoy the valley now and in the future owe their thanks to Charley and Sue Beck”
With over 6,800 people visiting the National Bighorn Sheep Center in 2019 (952 students, 344 adults through Road Scholars bus tours and many other special group visits), the Center looks forward to increasing its space to invite more special groups alongside our daily visitors.
