Discovery Day at Beringia Centre

Monday, August 20 -Discovery Day at Beringia Centre –free admission

Who would have thought that a gold strike near Dawson City would lead to a free day at Beringia Centre 122 years later?  Yet, when you think about it, the two are cause-and-effect related.  The original gold strike led to a gold rush.  The gold rush, in turn, led to a flurry of fossil finds still happening today.   As time passed, the need for a world class facility to interpret all those ice age bones, tusks, teeth, and mummified flesh became apparent.   One thing led to another, and presto, abracadabra –poof –free day at Beringia Centre.   You might think it is magic, but it’s practically Newtonian, really.
