Join Our Popular Paleontology/Paleobotany Classes!

Exploring the Pleistocene Epoch

Saber tooth tigers, mammoths and cave bears, oh my!

Come to this exciting enrichment class on the Pleistocene Era Friday, November 10th from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm, 2050 Lincoln Avenue, Alameda, 94501


What was the earth like 2.5 million to 11,700 years ago?  Why are some fossils so well preserved and others disintegrated?  Have your photo taken holding a 32” real woolly mammoth bone dug from the arctic tundra!  Compare the size of your hand to a real juvenile cave bear claw from Romania. Examine a kangaroo tooth, woolly mammoth fur, and a paleollama toe bone under the microscope.  Learn important paleontology and paleobotany information as you explore the remnants of the ice age through this hands-on investigation of over 25 different Pleistocene fossils from the Da Vinci Museum. Students will go home with their own pleistocene fossil!
