Uncover the stories fossils have to tell of how the climate once caused mass extinctions! Local fossil enthusiast and forensic chemist, Jim Enright, will take us to Prehistoric Trackways National Monument and show us fossils that are not so easy to find on your own. We will bring to light the dangers of climate change today, by looking to evidence of its changes in the past. To get to the fossils, we will take a very rocky Jeep trail. Be prepared to watch your step and make sure to bring sturdy shoes! RATING: Moderate/Difficult, for the rocky path and a 50m long inclined section of the trail. The hike will be approximately 3 miles.
Advance reservations are required and space is limited, so sign up early. All trips are open to the public; half the spots are reserved for members of the Southwest Envvironmental Center.
Date: November 2nd, 2019
