Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument: Past, Present and Future
Join us as we welcome Protectors of Tule Springs’ Directors, Sherri Grotheer and Stan Nudelman, as our June speakers. Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument captures a prehistoric time in rock with fossils of extinct mammoths, lions, camels, horses, bison, dire wolves, and several other creatures that roamed what once were wetlands of the area. Our speakers will share the history, importance and development of the Monument, the work their organization is doing to protect its resources, and how you can help their efforts. Come learn more about this hidden treasure in the northern part of the Las Vegas valley!
The mission of the Protectors of Tule Springs is to increase public understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument (TUSK), through aid to the National Park Service and support of programs for the interpretation and protection of Monument resources. This will be an educational chat about Las Vegas’ new National Monument you won’t want to miss!
We will see you there!
