Invertebrate Fossils and Dinosaurs
Friday, October 30 9:30 am to 11:30 am Fee: $5
Join Kevin McCartney for a look into the past and explore the fascinating world of invertebrate fossils and dinosaurs. Invertebrates, which include seashells and other simpler organisms, often include hard parts that commonly preserve as fossils. Dinosaurs are of course much rarer since these survived for a shorter interval of time and due to larger size the complete animals are less commonly preserved as fossils. The fossils of these organisms provide us with much information on how these individual organisms lived but also on the evolution of life itself on our planet.
