Workshop will help make
Ice Age hunting weapon
Long before the invention of the bow and arrow, Ice Age hunters used an atlatl, a weapon so forceful hunters could take on a critter as large as a woolly mammoth.
Willamalane Park and Recreation District invites the modern-day mammoth slayer to learn how to make an atlatl - a hooked dart-thrower - at a workshop on Saturday at the Dorris Ranch Barn, off South Second and Dorris streets, Springfield.
The workshop will run from 10 a.m. to noon. Children younger than 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Registration is required; call 736-4544.
