These days the people of Michigan don’t put food on their tables by tracking and killing a five-ton beast with a homemade spear, but they once did. Hunting Mastodons?!, a 20-minute interactive demonstration regarding Michigan mastodon hunters during the last ice age (12,000 years ago), will run Saturdays and Sundays from July 9-31 at the University of Michigan Exhibit Museum of Natural History. The program will focus on how archeologists study artifacts to learn about the relationship between people and mastodons.

Free. 1109 Geddes Ave. Saturdays at 11am and 3pm, Sundays at 3pm. 734-764-0478. www.lsa.umich.edu/exhibitmuseum.
