Tracking the Mammoth

Sat, 09/23/2017 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm

The Pleistocene Epoch was marked by glaciers sweeping across the land with the debut of our planet's most recent ice age. Who could survive in this often frozen landscape? Join us at 2 pm as we unlock the mysteries of the mammoths which made Earth home once upon a time. Unearth the natural history of these prehistoric mammals, learning about where and how these gentle giants lived. Discover how some of the earliest human settlements shared land with the mammoths, and how bones and tusks were used to make shelters, tools, and art. Related arts and crafts all day at the Wet Center.
