Following a brief business meeting, Madeline Mackie, Ph.D. from Laramie will speak on Ice Age Hunters of North America: A View from the La Prele Mammoth Site. This lecture was originally scheduled for last March but was postponed due to weather. Wyoming is home to several mammoth sites, and they have provided much of our knowledge of about these early hunters.

Visitors and new members are welcome. Please contact Mavis Greer, Chapter President, at mavis@greerservices.com if you have any questions.
