    When did the ice age start? Is it over now or will the ice return? And what happened to all those ice age mammals? All of these questions are answered this winter at RBG. 20,000 years ago, mammoths, mastadons, camels, giant sloths, short-faced bears, scimitar cats, and lions thrived on the open grasslands of the Yukon. It was the cold peak of the last glacial phase of the ice age. The Big Freeze brings the ice age story home to RBG, with a display of mammoth/mastodon remains that have been recovered in the local area, and artwork that provides a glimpse into the formation of the landscapes of RBG and the environment we see today. Daily family-friendly activities, special presentations and guest speakers make for an exciting experience where visitors of all ages can explore the past and learn about the future at the same time. Stay tuned for a full schedule of activities.
