Go back 80 million years ago to a time when dinosaurs ruled the planet. Paleontologists will be live online from the Menefee Formation in New Mexico where our team of scientists are excavating duck-bill and predatory dinosaurs. Join the expedition, ask questions and interact with paleontologists in the field.
