Uncovering Prehistoric Illinois

Meet mastodons and other creatures that once roamed ancient Illinois! In 2007, a team of DuPage County Forest Preserve naturalists and Field Museum scientists launched "Mastodon Camp"—a two-year summer program designed to teach Chicagoland educators and students about fossil excavation, as well as the geology and ecology of Ice-Age Illinois.

Check out the 2007 Expedition Archive, where you can read past dispatches describing field experiences, view amazing videos and photos of fossil finds, and explore an interactive map containing more information and images of the mastodon site!
