Next weeks meeting of the San Gorgonio Chapter of the Sierra Club will feature a presentation that discusses, among other things, finds in northern Wyoming’s Natural Trap Cave.

Held at California’s San Bernardino County Museum at 7:30pm on Tuesday, March 3rd, the presentation will be given by Eric Scott, the museum’s curator of paleontology, on his research of ice age horses.

The talk, titled “Evolving Icons: Ice Age horses of the American West”, will include Scott’s work at a variety of interesting sites including Tule Springs site in southern Nevada and Natural Trap Cave in northern Wyoming.

Located in northeast of Lovell, Wyoming, the bell-shaped Natural Trap Cave has been the subject multiple excavations beginning in the 1970’s. Besides horses, the remains of American cheetah, bison, wolves, bears, sheep and a whole host of other animals have been discovered in the cave.
