Small fossil finding

Sediments from the Pleistocene Snowmass Village site are being washed through fine mesh screens and the material stopped by the screens is being picked through to find small fossil animals.  This work is being perfomed by the volunteers and they are finding rodent teeth, amphibian bones, insect parts, and fish bones, among other items.  These fossils will help provide a picture of the ecology of the site when the large mammals were buried.
