Maryland presents its first mammoth fossil exhibit

Mocobizscene-The exhibit showcased a wide variety of fossils, including creatures such as moose, deer, bald eagles, and beavers. However, the main attraction that drew everyone’s attention was the partial skeleton of an authentic Woolly Mammoth.

“I’ve never seen mammoth bones before, and I must say, the exhibit is absolutely fascinating,” exclaimed Alton Becker.

A renowned archaeologist named Dr. Charles Breeze spent several years collecting the fossilized skeleton parts in Alaska. Interestingly, this is the first time it has been exhibited in the state of Maryland.

Marisa Canino emphasizes the significance of visiting this exhibit as a unique opportunity to gain insight into the state’s history before human existence. She highlights the presence of Woolly Mammoths on the same grounds we now tread upon, a fact that often goes unnoticed. The aim is to raise awareness about Maryland’s extensive natural heritage and the exhibit serves as a mere glimpse into this rich legacy.

The event offered a variety of enjoyable activities for the entire family. Attendees had the opportunity to watch a fascinating historical video about Woolly Mammoths and engage in arts and crafts sessions where children had the chance to create their very own mammoth art pieces.

Gemma enthusiastically expresses her enjoyment in learning about the history of all the animals.Brittany Rodger has painted a mammoth mural, which is another remarkable highlight of the exhibit. Rodger has harbored a fascination for creating an exhibit mural since the age of 17.

When given the chance to paint this mural, she eagerly embraced the opportunity.

According to the artist, she dedicated a total of 87 hours to the mural. This timeframe encompasses various activities such as sketching, conducting research, and extensive practice. The mural offers a vivid depiction of the lives of mammoths 10,000 years in the past. The National Society of Maryland is urging everyone to pay a visit to the exhibit, as both the exhibit itself and the mammoth will soon be leaving Maryland.

According to Marisa Canino, the exhibit will be available for approximately a year and will continue to evolve over time. New pieces and various artifacts will be added, allowing visitors to learn alongside the museum as new components are introduced.

The society is actively working towards bringing the complete skeleton of the mammoth to Maryland. They have set up a GoFundMe page, where people can contribute and support their efforts to achieve this goal.
