“Bringing Back Ice Age Beasts: Can We Really Clone a Mastodon?” with Tom Cardomone

Serious scientists in North America, Korea and Siberia have sequenced the DNA of Wooly Mammoths and some are restoring the grassy mammoth steppe ecosystems once widespread during the Ice Age. After all, once cloned, they’ll need a place to live. Could Colorado’s wildlife once again include mammoths, mastodons, giant-horned bison, huge short-face bear and other magnificent mammals that actually roamed the mountains and plains quite recently? The critical steps from cloning, to de-extinction, to re-wilding are challenging, and our discussion will be enlightening.

The Ice Age Discovery Center is located on the Snowmass Village Mall. Parking is provided in lots 4, 5, 8 and 9.

These events are free and open to the public.

May 16 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Have you considered taking your camera off the automatic setting and actually creating a photo? Using shutter speed, aperature, depth of field and depth of focus, you can MAKE a photo rather than taking whatever the camera wants to give you. Beginners will learn the basis of “Getting Off Automatic” and mid-level students will learn techniques they never knew existed. There is something for everyone as each student will be given individual attention. The class will also introduce the business component of photography.
