Ice Age Mammals
The 2,500 sq. ft. exhibition on Ice Age Mammals, is presented locally by the Township of Red Rock. This exhibition was produced by the Canadian Museum of Nature in partnership with the Montreal Science Centre, Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre and the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology . The exhibition shows research at fossil sites in the Yukon and in Canada’s High Arctic, from four million years ago (well before the beginning of the last glaciation) to 10,000 years ago.
It explores environmental change over time, human impact and theories behind the extinctions of certain mammal species.
Ice Age Mammals will remain at the Red Rock Marina Building and Interpretive Centre until August 31, 2013.
The Red Rock Marina building is located at 7 Park Road, on Red Rocks’ beautiful Lake Superior waterfront.
The buildings’ hours of operation are Tuesday – Sunday 8:00 am – 8:00 pm and Monday’s from 12:00 noon to 8:00 pm.
