May Mastodon Madness

Middle Smithfield Mastodon
DID YOU KNOW: the most complete skeletal remains of an American Mastodon were discovered right here in Middle Smithfield Township – the Marshall’s Creek Mastodon! Discover all about it during May Mastodon Madness brought to you by Middle Smithfield Township together with their Historical Commission and Economic Development Committee.

May Mastodon Madness

May 2 – May 15


What:
Local school children are invited to participate in a scavenger hunt that takes them to local businesses and points of interest.  When they visit each location their “Clue Card” gets stamped and they receive a free toy dinosaur.  When they have completed the hunt they can attend “Story Time” at the Hughes Library in Stroudsburg, where a life size reproduction of the Mastodon’s skeletal foot is on loan from Middle Smithfield Township historical commission.  There will be many great prizes for the children at the drawing at this library event.

Participation is easy. Just pick up your Clue Card and visit the places listed. Can’t pick up a clue card? No problem, we will mail you one! (click here to see a sample Clue Card!)
