Quest's TV story, Ice Age Bay Area, premiered on KQED on Tuesday, November 11, 2007. The story is based in part on Breck Parkman's paleoenvironmental research of the San Francisco Bay area. Breck participated in two day's of filming with the Quest crew, including a bit at Sunset Rocks. You can watch the show below. Enjoy!
The producer's description of the episode: Imagine a vast grassy plain covered with massive herds of elephants, bison and camels stretching as far as the eye can see. Lions, tigers, wolves and later, humans hunt the herds on their huge summer migration. Where is this? This was the Bay Area during the close of the last Ice Age. Take a trip to a time when the San Francisco Bay was just a riverbed, 20,000 to 10,000 years ago.
