Field Trip to the NYSM: A Closer Look at the Cohoes Mastodon

Have you ever wanted to ask questions about one of the NYSM's most famous fossils, the Cohoes Mastodon? How was it discovered? When did it live and how did it die? Is it a boy or a girl? Dr. Robert S. Feranec, NYSM curator of Ice Age animals, will answer all of your questions (and more!) as he helps unravel several mysteries about this magnificent mammal. This program is recommended for elementary students, but all are welcome!
