Topic, "Mastodons in Daytona"

Hi. This month we will have a fascinating discussion at our Cafe Sci at 7PM on Wednesday 6 June, at Taste, in College Park.

About 6 months ago, amateur paleontologists were sifting through dirt and rubble at a Daytona construction site, and discovered bones and teeth from a mastodon, an enormous tusked mammal that died more than 13 thousand years ago and weighed several tons.

Zach Zacharias is Senior Curator of both Education and History at Daytona Museum of Arts and Sciences. He will talk about these and other mastodons, which lived during the Oligocene through Pleistocene periods, and if we're very lucky, may even have mastodon bones for us to hold.

Taste is near the corner of Princeton Street (really Smith Street after the fork) and Edgewater Drive, so about 2 minutes from I-4 to parking. One can park on the street or in the parking lot behind Taste.

From I-4, drive a few blocks to Edgewater Drive. At the intersection, you should see a orange building ahead of you, labeled "Taste". Park on the street or behind Taste.
