What is Paleontology? Paleontology is the study of ancient life, from dinosaurs to prehistoric plants, mammals, fish, insects, fungi, and even microbes.
Kids 8 years-old and up are invited to particiapate in the very first “Dino Dig.” This one-hour long program will have young “Paleontologists” learning about the fossilization process, where to look, and digging up the bones.  Once all found, the bones will be reassembled to a dinosaur that is modeled after Velociraptor and the Utahraptor.
