Dinosaur Dig

July 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Field Paleontologists, Mike and Roberta Straka, will construct a dinosaur dig site right in the Hershey Public Library. Children will dig for REAL dinosaur bones. Next, we 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. In addition, before each 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. **Space is limited for the dinosaur dig. Please register online each child who will be participating to ensure a place. Everyone is welcome to listen to the introductory talk. The program is suitable for children in grades K-5. Sponsored by the Friends.

Contact Rita Smith at 717-533-6555 ext. 3708 with any questions you might have.
