If we could travel back in time to Utah during the great ice age, we’d hardly recognize our state.
Lake Bonneville would cover about one-quarter of our territory. The climate would be much
colder and wetter, resembling the conditions now experienced in Eastern Canada. Amid this
cooler climate, giant mammals roamed across Utah. They included saber-toothed cats, lions, the
short-faced bear, the giant ground sloth, the elephant-like mastodon, and the woolly mammoth.
On Tuesday, December 10, Voyager Lecturer Ron Smith will describe these remarkable animals
of ice age Utah. As a former tour guide and volunteer fossil preparer at the Page Museum of
Natural History, he’s actually extracted ice age mammal and bird fossils found at the La Brea Tar
Pits. Our Center for the Performing Arts becomes a time machine. Travel with Ron to a
remarkable era of huge mammals and birds.
