Valley of the Mastodons
Opening This August
Mastodons once roamed Diamond Valley Lake – this summer, they’re coming back.
The Western Science Center is home to over a dozen mastodons who lived during the Ice Age. With the help of researchers and scientists from across the country, we’ll be investigating fossils that have never before been on public display.
Using tools like CT scanning and 3D printing, we’ll explore the inside (and outside!) of our mastodons From Blaze, a fossil mastodon with scorch marks, to the famous Max and his jaw injuries, we’ve only scratched the surface of what we know about these long dead animals.
