December 30 –9 am to 1 pm Classic Cartoons and Toaster Tarts
The long wait is over: it is time to go to Beringia Centre to check out the results of the Great stocking experiment. This meticulously designed and rigorously implemented scientific experiment was to put out stockings over Christmas and see if you get the same results at a museum as you do at home. It worked last year, but will it work again?
So you think modern Yukon is wild? Well, be prepared to walk on the wild side –the real wild side –where mammoths, scimitar cats and giant short-faced bears roamed. Prehistoric Yukon makes modern Yukon look like a petting zoo. And what's more: it was one of the first places in North America culture shows up! Take part in our Ice Age Challenge –and see if you could have survived 10, 000 years B.C.. (Hint: it involves pointy sticks).
