Library Voices: Saving Creation
Presented by Robin Smith
Monday, Nov. 18 - 6:30 p.m.
Montrose Library Meeting Room

The first people to settle North America 15,000 years ago saw camels, zebras, lions, cheetas, rhinoceros, and woolly mammoths. They also saw bizarre creatures like the Volkswagen Beetle-sized armadillo called a Glyptodont, ground sloths that tipped the scales at 7,700 pounds, and giant Saber-toothed cats. But they are all extinct now--57 species of Megafauna gone in the blink of an eye. Where dod they go? Is their disappearance related to the 24,000 species of plants and animals worldwide that are threatened with extinction today?

If you want to know more, then you must see this fascinating presentation!
