Exploring the Ice Age across Alberta

Thursday, November 21, 2019 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Fish Creek Environmental Learning Centre Shannon Terrace, Fish Creek Provincial Park

Presented by Dr. Chris Jass - Curator of Quaternary Palaeontology at the Royal Alberta Museum

Alberta is rich in fossils, and over the past 10 years, Dr. Chris Jass, has visited sites around the province exploring the Ice Age fossil record found in caves, gravel pits, lakes, and river drainages. Fossil remains recovered from those field projects reveal tantalizing hints of landscapes occupied by both extinct and extant (living) animals, highlighting the link between the ancient and modern biota. In his presentation, Dr. Jass will take you to different palaeontological sites around the province, highlight what those sites tell us about the Ice Age history of Alberta, and discuss how that information is relevant to our world today. .

 Dr. Chris Jass is the Curator of Quaternary Palaeontology at the Royal Alberta Museum. He has been exploring and studying Alberta’s Ice Age history for the past 10 years in that role. He received an M.S. in Quaternary Studies (Northern Arizona University) and a Ph.D. in Geological Sciences (The University of Texas at Austin). Prior to moving to Alberta, he worked extensively across the western U.S., studying Ice Age deposits in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota and Texas.

Refunds are possible up to 7 days before the event, but service fee will not be refunded.
