Oct. 2 and Oct. 6 sloth talks

Holmes and I will be taking the sloth to Drake University in Des Moines Friday October 2  and presenting a powerpoint program entitled The Life and Death of the Tarkio Valley Giant Sloths.  The program starts at 7:30 PM in Meredith Hall Room 101, South Auditorium.   We’ll take a few bones to pass around and save plenty of time for questions.   The  program is sponsored by the Central Iowa Mineral Society and is free and open to all.    

Sarah Horgen and I will be at the Story County Conservation Center at McFarland Park near Ames on Tuesday October 6 to repeat the program for their Older, Wiser, Livelier Seniors (OWLS)  series.  The program begins at 11:00 AM.   For registration and information about the O.W.L.S. program, contact the Story County Conservation Center at 515-232-2516 (8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday).
