Ceratopsians are a diverse and beloved dinosaur group, and many roamed through the area we now call Utah! Join Carrie Levitt-Bussian, NHMU Paleontology Collections Manager, for a Q&A for 3rd-6th and 6th-12th graders. We will also have a dinosaur themed story time for our younger learners with an NHMU Educator. Bring the wonder of NHMU directly into the classroom through these online webinars!
