Dinosaur Dig for Kids

Wednesday, July 17, 2019 - 6:30pm
Event location: 
Blue Bell

For grades 3-5 only.


Field Paleontologists Mike and Roberta Straka will construct a dinosaur dig site right in the
library! Before the dig, Mike will present a 30-minute interactive fossil talk to get our Jr.
Paleontologists ready to go on their dig. During the talk, Mike will cover how and where we
find fossils. He will showcase a 66-million-year-old meteorite, that we believe, is part of the
meteorite that started the great extinction.

Imagine the excitement as your children get the chance to dig for REAL
dinosaur bones. Next, they will identify the bones and finally, they will place the fossils on a
Triceratops cut out. They will actually build a Triceratops with the bones that they discover.

As a special bonus, after the dig each patron can spend time looking at our expanded fossil
museum. Rare and unusual fossils that we have discovered will be on display.
