Mastodon Bones Visit CCHS

Today and tomorrow we have the privilege of hosting some of the Mastodon bones, which were co-discovered by Steve Hunderman (a 1997 CCHS graduate) in Byron Center over Labor Day weekend.  Stop by and see the skull and femur (and a cow femur  for comparison) in Mr. Adema’s room, (94), and a few ribs and vertebrae in Mrs. Teusink’s room (98).  See the MLive article to learn more about the bones and where they’re headed next.
