The Dinosaur team of Paleontologists of Mike and Roberta Strata will be joining us again this summer as part of this year’s Summer Reading Program!  Youth and their families are invited to take part in a scientific exploration highlighting the world of dinosaurs, fossils and rocks/minerals.  

Their fun-filled show will cover the formation of fossils, herbivores vs. carnivores, basics of geology (rocks and minerals).  The team will discuss their work as field paleontologists and background in geology. There will be an interactive fossil talk to ready the Junior Paleontologists to go on their dig! Field Paleontologist Mike will cover how and where fossils can be located. See some amazing discoveries from the time of the dinosaurs to the time of the ice age.  The team will set up a “museum of artifacts” to view.
Paleontologist Roberta will take the Junior Paleontologists on their dig for real dinosaur fossils and construct or build a dinosaur with the findings! Program includes a fossil talk and and Roberta’s amazing discoveries. This “hands-on” program is special because everyone will handle real dinosaur fossil bones – not plastic. Construct a dinosaur dig site right in the library!
