Ice Age Weapon focus of event

Long before the invention of the bow and arrow, early Ice Age residents of the Willamette Valley hunted with a hooked dart thrower called an atlatl (pronounced "ott-lottle"). Would-be mammoth slayers of the modern age will get a chance to craft their own atlatls during a free historical "trail talk" event Saturday at Dorris Ranch in Springfield. Participants will also be able to view mammoth bones and aim their atlatls at a mammoth target. Advance registration is required; call 736-4544.

Park closure scheduled

Starting today, William M. Tugman State Park's campground near Reedsport will be closed while workers make improvements to the electrical utility system.

The campground is expected to be closed until mid-May. Day-use facilities, including the park's reservable group picnic shelter and its boat ramp and fishing dock on Eel Lake, will remain open.

February Fossil Fest planned

OSU Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport will hold its annual Fossil Fest on Feb. 12. Event hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Activities include displays, a fossil swap and talks by Oregon's state paleontologist, Dr. William Orr, and by Guy DiTorrice, the "Oregon Fossil Guy."

Also, children will get a chance to cast their own fossil replicas, and the public is invited to bring in fossils to be identified by experts.
