"Digging Snowmastodon: Discovering an Ice Age World" 

When: Mon., March 26, 7 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

In 2010, the driver of a bulldozer discovered some big bones while on a job in Snowmass Village. Within two weeks, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science would take over an excavation that grew to include eight to 10 mastodons, four mammoths, one Jefferson's ground sloth and various other fossils. Tonight, Museum paleontologist and project co-leader Ian Miller will share details about what went into the dig, what came out of the dig, and other scientific analysis that made it into his co-authored March release, Digging Snowmastodon: Discovering an Ice Age World in the Colorado Rockies. The talk's free and happens at 7 at Colorado College's Gates Common Room (1025 N. Cascade Ave., — Kirsten Akens
