Recent Archeological Find at Lake Mackenzie

 

Equus Scotti is an extinct horse from the Pleistocene era.  This fossil was discovered on Lake property by a group of home schooled science children that were on a science field trip in May of 2008.  In addition, in the following eleven months, a total of 5 Equus Scotti have been found in the area.  The home schooled children and their parents (under the advisement of geological professionals) have completed all the excavations, preservation, and research work regarding these discovered fossils.  The Equus Scotti Horse is on display along with other fossils in the lake marina, Mackenzie Bait & Tackle.
