Title of Lecture: Digging Up Dinosaurs 101
Lecture Description: In Utah and Colorado, you really can find a dinosaur bone in your backyard. Teams of trained paleontologists make discoveries every day, but sometimes, new fossils are uncovered completely by accident in unexpected places. Natalie will discuss the process by which paleontologists decide where to dig and why, how fossils are carefully uncovered in the field, and the tricky, but exciting ways in which dinosaurs are transported safely back to the Museum for research, education, and exhibition.
