Lunchtime Discovery: Video Chat from a Dinosaur Dig

  • Wednesday, August 04, 2021
  • 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Join us online for a live video chat from a dinosaur quarry!

Join us on YouTube!

Paleontologist Dr. Eric Lund will be live online from Utah where our team of scientists are searching rocks dating back to the Late Cretaceous around 96 million years ago. They hope to find fossils of orodromine dinosaurs, dinosaur egg sites, new meat-eating dinosaurs, and more.

Our live call will give you the chance to join the expedition, ask questions and interact with paleontologists in the field.

Join us for more updates from the dinosaur quarries on:
Science Tonight, June 10 at 7pm EDT on YouTube

Live Virtual Presentation hosted by N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences Daily Planet Curator Chris Smith and the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality Office of Environmental Education and Public Affairs staff.
