The Ice Age Discovery Center, located on the Snowmass Village Mall is now open for the season everyday from 10-5 through September 30th. And, this year, the bones are coming back!
Starting around July 1, a lab prep table will be featured at the IADC with casts of the actual bones uncovered at the dig site. A scientist will be on-site five days per week to explain the process of preserving the bones, the significance of the find, and what scientists continue to learn about the site.
The Center was opened March 11, 2011 to help tell the story of the significant fossil find at Ziegler Reservoir in October, 2010 through creative displays, educational panels, photographs, a half-size wooden mammoth, videos, and interactive programming.
Will you be visiting the Ice Age Discovery Center this summer? We hope to see you there.
