GRAHAMSVILLE - Join the Time and the Valleys Museum for an online virtual program: Mastodons of Orange County on Sunday, April 11 at 2 p.m.
A large, extinct, elephant-like mammal of the Miocene to Pleistocene epochs, more than eighty mastodon remains have been recovered in New York State. Several mastodons have been recovered in the Orange County area, the first in 1811 by American painter, soldier, scientist and naturalist Charles Willson Peale in Montgomery, Orange County.
Speaker Gary Keeton has participated in several exhumations of New York state mastodons in the local area. Join Gary to learn about the modern recovery of these creatures that roamed the area more than 10,000 years ago.
