The testing of a previously uninspected area of private land occurred in July of 2021. Local residents had reported finding several species of extinct animals nearby, including the giant ground sloth (Paramylodon harlani) and the mastodon (Mammut pacificus). To understand the environment in which these animals lived, small portions of the ancient sediments were recovered from underground for examination. Through our work in July, we were able to reconstruct the 14,000 year old ecozone for this specific area. This exciting field opportunity provided a location for people to learn or improve their skills in the methods of inspection and documentation that are appropriate to many Willamette Valley site areas. It also provided an opportunity to develop new partnerships with multiple organizations.
