Sunday, January 31, 2016
12:00 AM
UM Museum of Natural History, 1109 Geddes Avenue, Ann Arbor MI 48109

(No Demos December 26, 27 or January 2, 3)

Join us for an interactive demonstration exploring some of the evidence of mastodon and mammoth hunting by people who lived in Michigan between 10 and 15 thousand years ago.  Visitors will meet the Museum mastodons, learn about a recent mammoth find, and discover the interactions between people and these massive mammals by examining stone points and bone casts.  Visitors will also learn about how museum scientists reproduce important fossils and artifacts by making their own casts to take home! 

Hands-on demonstrations are 20-30 minute free interactive programs on the 2nd floor of the Museum. They include both brief presentations highlighting University research and engaging hands-on activities, and are suitable for adults and children ages 5 and up.
