PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - An exhibit that examines South Dakota’s environmental history will close Tuesday after two years of having been on display at the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre.

“South Dakota Environments: A Window to Past Times” 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 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.
