In October 2010 excavators working at the Ziegler Reservoir in Snowmass Village made an astonishing discovery. The site was the final resting place of 41 different kinds of Ice Age animals including mammoths, mastodons, giant bison and more. It is one of the most significant discoveries in North America. Bring the kids and learn more about the discovery!
