New Snowmastodon Research Released

A new volume of research documents in detail the Ice Age fossil find in Snowmass Village. The Denver Museum of Nature and Science announced yesterday the so-called Snowmastodon Project Science Volume is being published in an international journal.

Fourteen papers by 47 authors from the United States and abroad contributed to the work. Snowmastodon Project co-leader Dr. Ian Miller says it represents a new benchmark for understanding climate change in the American West.

Yogis from around the world will descend on Snowmass Thursday for a festival called Wanderlust. The six year old traveling event brings yoga, live music, lectures and food to the places it visits. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen has more.

The Wanderlust Festival started in Lake Tahoe in 2009. This year it’s traveling to seventeen locations including Snowmass, Australia, Chile and Brooklyn. Co-founder Jeff Krasno says the idea came after he and his business partner traveled to Costa Rica for a yoga retreat.

Aspen has a full city council again. Former council member Dwayne Romero has been selected to fill a vacancy created by the election of Mayor Steve Skadron.

Also returning this week are the mammoth and mastodon bones recovered in Old Snowmass. The fossils are on public display not far from where the animals died tens of thousands of years ago.

We talk with a biologist about tree killing insects and how they actually affect human health.

Our science reporter does what everyone’s mother says not to…look straight at the sun.

And we’ll hear about a work of art about the Colorado River that’s on display in downtown Chicago.
