Who doesn't dig dinosaurs?! You definitely will at this FREE family fun program!

Calling all budding geology and paleontology enthusiasts!

Collect your field journal at the Esplanade entrance and start your adventure by visiting fun filled activity stations to collect stamps. Once you are finished submit it for a chance to win tickets to A Dinosaur Tale!

Join our MH Interpretive Program friends Alicia and Mhairi at 1pm and 2pm sharp for a brief 15 minute exploration of geologic time from the ancient oceans, to dinosaurs, to the Ice Age. If your curiosity is peaked and you find yourself full of questions - Great! Alicia and Mhairi will be happy to chat with you further and let you get a closer look at a selection of fossils.

Now that you have the ground work, why not dig a little further with our excavation boxes? With these 4'x4' boxes, children will have plenty of room to practice their excavation skills together and search for replica dinosaur and other fossilized organisms.  

The fun doesn't stop there, scientists have to have a keen eye, so be sure to hone yours with our special Dinosaur Bones & Stories in Stone gallery scavenger hunt, then round out your training by combining science and art with our paleontology inspired art activity. Finish off your fun filled afternoon on a sweet note when you check out our dinosaur themed candy bar!

Don't forget to submit your field journal on the way out for a chance to win tickets to A Dinosaur Tale, a live action fantasy adventure for the whole family!
