The Casper duo, who've been friends since high school and took ornithology class together at the University of Wyoming at Casper College, are in charge of managing group visits, weekly birding lunches and the study of the local bird population.
They carried snacks, bug spray and a large "Thank You" sign for the center's new coordinators, Rene Hansen and Donnie Claunch. In their first few weeks in charge, the visit from the Manor Heights summer school class was just one of many.
To help make their plans reality, they are hoping to raise money this fall by partnering with local art teachers to create a calendar. Students will compete in a drawing contest, and winners will be featured in a calendar for purchase before the winter holidays.
"They really do let you kind of do whatever you want to do," Claunch said.
The Audubon provides binoculars and books for bird watching as well as information about the area's habitat and wildlife. The group is working with the Casper Museum Consortium to host date night and children's camp events and will have an informational booth at the Beartrap Summer Festival family area.
Hansen told the students to each choose a card containing either an animal or plant and stand in a circle. She then led the group in a game of "Web of Life," handing a strand of brown Air Max 2015 For Girl yarn to a teacher holding the cottonwood tree card.

A yellow school bus parked at the Audubon Center at Garden Creek and about 20 children filed out.
In the past week, Claunch said they netted 47 birds. The most they've ever captured before that was 27.
"We're not just about birding," Hansen said.
Claunch left college and worked in retail and the gas industry before returning to school. He sought a degree that would be viable to the workforce, yet fun, so he chose biology. It aligned with his passion for nature, and the center gave Claunch the freedom to explore his interests.
YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.
Hansen and Claunch replaced Wanda Peters, who left for a graduate program and teaching position at Prescott College in Arizona earlier this month. Both graduated from the University of Wyoming at Casper College this May. Claunch, 33, has a degree in biology and Hansen, 31, graduated with a degree in secondary education for science.
Both Hansen and Claunch said they've been given few restrictions from Audubon Rockies, the center's parent organization, and Audubon Rockies staff have only encouraged them to try new things. Aside from enhancing community education, the pair would like to make the center wheelchair accessible. They've also discussed minor renovations, such as a window replacement for better bird watching and removing the wall separating storage space from the central room.
Hansen returned to college to study elementary education in 2007 after a four year break. But she decided to change her major after instructing classes at the Casper Mountain Science School. Nike Air Max Thea Se Black
"I loved working outside," she said. "My passion is outdoor education, so here works very well."
The center has a small budget for supplies, but Hansen said community support and volunteers are essential to its future.
Claunch and Hansen's overall goal is to educate the community and youth population about wildlife and its habitat in Casper. They practiced an exercise showing how animal and plant life depend on each other with the Manor Heights students.
