October 29 | Ancient Humans and Ice Age Mammal Extinction

with Amy Atwood, Registrar and Collections Manager of Paleontology, MOR

Featuring Lewis & Clark Brewing Company and Backcountry Burger Bar

Thousands of years ago, Montana’s landscape was home to strange mammals. Giant sloths, woolly mammoths, dire wolves, camels, horses, cave bears and more all went extinct around 11,000 years ago in North America. While climate change and disease may have played a role, another mammal showed up right before this extinction event occurred: humans. Learn about the role of humans in the Ice Age Megafaunal Extinction.
