Pleistocene Fossils of Hawver Cave

What animals sipped water from the American River 10,000 years ago? What predators lurked in the predawn hours near Auburn Ravine, waiting for prey to wander out? Fossils of extinct animals that once lived in this region of California were discovered by Dr. Hawver in a cave near Cool, California just after the turn of the 20th century. If you would like to see examples of some of these fossils and to learn more about the Pleistocene life they represent, please come to the Placer County Museum on Friday, September 18th at 7:00 pm. Gene Lorance, who has done extensive research in the Hawver Cave, will present a slideshow on the cave and the fossils found inside.
