Snowmass fossils: what’s next

· Jul. 30, 2011, 11:49 pm

Coloradans have been able to view some of the Ice Age fossils recently unearthed in Snowmass Village - including tusks and bones from mammoths, mastodons, bison and deer. Saturday (11/20) is the last day some of the fossils will be available for public viewing for a while at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. After that,  researchers will be busy preserving and analyzing  their findings before scientists return to the dig site next spring.   Colorado Public Radio's Anna Panoka spoke with Kirk Johnson, chief curator at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
