Dino Dig

Dino Dig

When- Saturday, October 16th
Time- 12:00 p.m.
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 participate 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.
Dress for getting dirty. A parent and/or guardian must be present at the program with child(ren).
A suggested donation of $5/child or $10/family. Preregistration is required. Please register by sending an email to moosewoodnc@gmail.com with name(s).
