Preservation Parks of Delaware County "Into the Ice Age"
May 26-October 31
Kick-Off Weekend is May 26-28 at Deer Haven and Shale Hollow Parks
Find Out More!

Discover the world of mastodons, saber toothed cats, and woolly mammoths – kicking off May 26, 7 p.m. at Deer Haven Park. You can watch the animated “Ice Age” movie under the stars, see the full-size mastodon skeleton, and pick up a FREE woolly mammoth poster for the first 100 visitors.

“Into the Ice Age” starts Memorial Day weekend, with hunts for Ice Age animals, walks over a “bog,” and special, limited-time exhibits. It’s all FREE, and no reservations are required.

Preservation Parks of Delaware County will be showing the animated Ice Age movies, displaying a full-size mastodon skeleton and other Ice Age animals, sending you off into the parks in search of Ice Age animal silhouettes, and offering programs that will teach you more about the era.

Into the Ice Age lasts until October 31.

The nine parks in Preservation Parks of Delaware County are always the place to go when you want to immerse yourself in nature – hiking on trails, gathering with friends at a picnic shelter, walking your dog, exploring the parks through Summer Letterbox Adventure, or learning all about wildlife from one of the naturalists.
