TUSK! Burke Museum Paleontology Expert to Speak at March SLU Community Council Meeting

They once roamed freely. Before the verve of urban renewal sparked this burgeoning technology and health-sciences center and innovative public spaces and inviting eateries gave it heart.

But today, all that remains are fossilized remnants of the wooly-tusked beasts that called South Lake Union home some 20,000 years ago.

On Tuesday, March 4, during the regular meeting of the South Lake Union Community Council at the Museum of History and Industry, Christian Sidor, Ph.D., Burke Museum curator of paleontology and excavation leader of the recently discovered 8 1/2 foot Columbian mammoth tusk unearthed last week in South Lake Union, will walk us through the discovery and excavation of this ice-age artifact and answer questions about its history and future.
