PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota State Historical Society is getting set to debut a new exhibit on South Dakota’s environmental history.

“South Dakota Environments: A Window to Past Times” opens Saturday, April 5, in the Observation Gallery of the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre.

Museum director Jay Smith says the exhibit features four epochs of environmental history about the land that eventually became South Dakota. Visitors can explore Paleozoic, Mesozoic, Pleistocene and Holocene epochs and witness animals found on the land.

Displays will feature a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a Short-Face Bear and a massive representation of a mammoth.

The exhibit also demonstrates how the location of the land that became South Dakota has shifted along with what became the North American continent over time.
