Series will continue with Richard Baker, Professor Emeritus, UI Department of Geoscience at 7 p.m. in the Senate Chamber of the Old Capitol Museum. Baker’s talk “The Incredible Snowmastadon site, Colorado: Its setting, age, and plant and animal fossils” is in conjunction with the opening reception of “Iowa’s Ice Age Giants" exhibit.

The Snowmastodon site, near Snowmass Village, Colorado, was discovered in 2010 when construction workers building a reservoir dam to supply water to Snowmass Village uncovered fossil bones that turned out to belong to a young female mammoth. Over the next year, the project unearthed nearly 5,000 bones from 26 different Ice Age animals, including mammoths, mastodons, bison, camels, a Pleistocene horse, and the first ground sloth ever found in Colorado. This event is free and open to the public. 

Light refreshments co-sponsored by Molly’s Cupcakes IC.
