Our Vision

The Hundreds of fossil sites in the Upper Las Vegas Wash represent one of the most important assemblages of Ice Age  animal remains in North America, dating from 10,000 to 250,000 years ago.  Mammoths, ground sloths, camels, horses, bison saber tooth cat, dire wolf and giant North American lions lived right here in what is now Las Vegas.  We have a vision that they can be preserved, researched and interpreted in an Ice Age Park for the benefit of students, scientist, Nevadans of all ages and tourist audiences.
