Hunting & Gathering Lecture Series: Hunting for the Ancient Past

March 14, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free – $10
Hunting and Gathering Lecture series - Learning to Read the Landscape

Join us for an exploration of hunting and gathering, from food and medicine to the naturalist’s habit of creating collections. Each of our six speakers will share their expertise, from identification and use of the object of the hunt to identifying the landscape or phenology clues that will help hunters and gatherers to find what they’re looking for.

Our second speaker is Kallie Moore, Collections Manager at the UM Paleontology Center. Join us for her lecture, Hunting for the Ancient Past: Field Guide to Montana Fossils. Montana has a rich fossil history that spans over a billion years! Many of these fossils are easy to collect…if you know where to look. However, not all are free for the taking. There are many rules, regulations, and ethics that every good rock hound should be aware of. This lecture will give brief summary of the fossiliferous geology of Montana as well as a guide for legal collecting in the state.

Check out our full list of speakers and topics here.

Cost per lecture: $10; $5 members; FREE for high school and college students.

Purchase tickets here(We will also sell tickets at the door, but purchasing in advance will ensure you get a seat!)

Ticket includes beer and/or wine (if over 21) from The Dram Shop; non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.

Thank you to the Good Food Store for sponsoring our lecture series!
