KkVi-VP-32, Dawson Locality 32: The mammals in this assemblage suggest that extensive tracts of cool steppe-like grassland covered upland areas in the region during the late Wisconsinan. Patches of forest may have been located in valleys. Because of the relatively high density of the bones, it would appear that many of the vertebrates were transported down-slope from the former grassland toward the end of the Wisconsinan and became concentrated near the surface of the local creek gravels.
