Exhibition Opening: “Dam It! Beavers and Us”

Saturday, January 30, 2021, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM


In the Pleistocene era, a mammal that was up to eight feet long and 220 pounds roamed what is now the High Desert and beyond. One incisor tooth excavated from Oregon’s South Yamhill River in 2017 measured three inches long. This massive creature, Castoroides ohioensis, was the giant beaver, ancestor of the modern North American beaver, Castor canadensis.
A replica of the giant beaver, as well as the skull of a squirrel-sized Pleistocene relative, will begin the story of this iconic animal in a new, original Museum exhibit, Dam It! Beavers and Us. The exhibition will explore this important member of the order Rodentia and explore the interrelationship of people, beavers and the landscape.


Cost: General: $14 Senior (65 plus): $12 College Student (with I.D.): $12 Child (ages 3-12): $9 2 and younger free
