Dr. Sharon Holte to present on prehistoric bear–3D scanning as well!

Welcome back Dr. Sharon Holte (all the way from the Mammoth Site in South Dakota!) in an all new presentation on bear.  View a record setting black bear skull from Polk County WI–then compare it to the massive skull of the prehistoric short faced bear.  We’ll also be doing some 3D scanning!  If you like fossils, be sure to stop in at the Visitor Center and check out this special program.  Free and open to all ages.  Park sticker required.
