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. 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. 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.
