FREE Dinosaur Lecture
Friday, March 10, 7 PM, UW Kane Hall Room 130
Over the last two centuries, paleontologists have discovered more than two thousand species of dinosaurs, and yet we have just begun to understand them as once-living organisms. Dinosaurs “ruled the Earth,” but what did they really do in their ecosystems? How different was the world of dinosaurs from our own? The answers come in surprisingly small packages, but paint a vibrant picture of the Mezozoic world.
Find out more with Dr. Matthew Carrano, curator of Dinosauria at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. He will discuss how tiny vertebrate fossils reveal a trove of information, from large-scale evolutionary patterns of dinosaurs, to how dinosaurs varied across landscapes and changed over time.
Please note: This event takes place at UW Kane Hall Room 130 (directions to Kane Hall). This free lecture is recommended for ages 10 and up. The Burke Museum is hosting its annual Dino Weekend on March 11 and 12, from 10 am – 5 pm, which is a great event for all ages including young dinosaur enthusiasts.
