Ice Age Mammals: Science Talk and Artist Walk
Free and open to the public.
.
Go back in time with us to the end of the Pleistocene epoch, 13,000 years ago, when glaciers covered North America. Discover what changes were taking place in the environment and why some animals survived while others, like masto-dons and sabre toothed-lions
did not.

Meredith Kelly
Science Talk: Jeffrey Kerby, is a Visiting Arctic Fellow at Dartmouth College. His research touches on elements of community, landscape, and behavioral ecology, and has recently focused on gelada monkeys and large Arctic herbivores. He is interested in how life history traits mediate species interactions, particularly in highly seasonal and rapidly changing environments of the Arctic and alpine regions of Africa.

Artist Walk: The contributing artists, Bob Shannahan and Wendy Klemperer will take us along the lighted pathway through the meadow to examine the Ice Age Mammals up close. We’ll explore the types of adaptations they used to survive the snow and ice-covered world just 13,000 years ago and learn about their processes in researching and building the life-sized sculptures.
.
Following the walk, warm up with some refreshments and hot cocoa!
