Naturalist Nights | Beyond Mastodons and Mammoths: The Latest Scientific Understanding from the Snowmass Ice Age Discovery
What was Snowmass like during the last interglacial period? As a result of the geologic and fossil data collected during the Snowmastodon excavation at the Ziegler Reservoir in 2010-11, scientists were able to reconstruct the ecosystem during the Sangamon interglacial period. Stephanie Lukowski of Snowmass Ice Age Discovery will take an in depth look at the geologic history of the Ziegler Reservoir and the fossil plants and animals featured in the paleoenvironmental reconstruction to explain how the past ecosystem changed in response to the climate of that time.
*Stephanie will also be presenting on Wednesday, January 11 at 5:30 at Carbondale's Third Street Center.*
