Mass Extinctions and Climate Change

November 2nd, 2019

Group walking into a canyon in Prehistoric Trackways National Monument

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 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. 

Space is limited and advance registration is required. Registration opens 3 weeks before each hike date. Half of the available slots for each trip are reserved for members of the Southwest Environmental Center. Not a member? Join today!
