Michigan Farmer and Part Time Teacher Discovers Nearly Complete Mastodon

It’s been an exciting week for Michigan paleontologists with a local grown farmer and part-time teacher was on a hike when he discovered a mastodon bone belonging to an 11,000 years dead local. Within hours there were volunteers from all walks of life who were quick to dig through mud and soil for one of the best mastodon skeletons that has ever been found.


So whether you’re out hiking or hunting in the great state of Michigan, wear a little pride and a little swag for the state with this Camp Life Hoodie.

Seth Colling’s keen eye brought a crowd of researchers, teachers, grad students, volunteers and TV cameras to the banks of an unnamed creek near Mayville in Michigan’s Thumb on Saturday.

“My whole life, I’ve looked at the ground and I’ve picked up interesting stuff,” said Colling, a farmer and part-time teacher at the Fowler Center for Outdoor Learning, a year-round camp for children and adults with special needs.

In 2014, Colling picked up a mastodon bone in the creek. On Saturday, University of Michigan paleontologists and grad students, along with teachers from Thumb-area schools, were unearthing more of the male mastodon that about 11,000 years ago met an untimely end — perhaps with the assistance of Ice Age humans.

Happiness, Love & Loss

We spend a lot of time having fun here at Livnfresh, and a lot of that is by talking with our great customers. We love the stories we hear about you all going on journeys, hanging with friends, exploring the woods and relaxing by the lake and it’s all of you who motivate us to come to work every day. Still, we received a message the other day that made us both glad to be around but sad for the news. Margaret Evans sent us this message:

“I just want to tell you your page makes me happy. My best friend just passed away and it was unexpected and sudden. With that being said and all the sadness that goes with it her favorite place in the world was to go up north. So every time I see one of your posts show up on my page I think of her and all the happy times we’ve had together. Just thought I would share one way your page makes someone happy. ”

So we wanted to let Margaret know that she’s in our hearts and to send love from Michigan with some beautiful photography from here on the Fresh Coast:

Margaret Evans, we are truly sorry to hear about your loss.

With love and regards,

The Livnfresh Staff

*Please note-Stephen’s Affinity and undying love for the University of Michigan are his views and his alone. Livnfresh would never “Officially” choose sides on Michigan VS MSU. Stephen was forced to write this against his will.
