Free Talk: Bone-Headed Dinosaurs, Wednesday, November 25, 7 p.m.

Join us for a FREE evening lecture on thick-skulled dinosaurs, the pachycephalosaurs (pack-ee-seff-uh-low-sores ). Kids have been able to say that dinosaur name for eons, yet it always tricks up us older folks. Learn not only how to pronounce this and other awkward dino names, but also everything about these strange-looking, bone-headed dinosaurs! 

Come on over at 7 p.m. to see a presentation done by Erin LaCount on critters that butted heads like these unique dinosaurs at the Dinosaur Ridge Visitor Center (C470 and Alameda Parkway). Recommended for adults only (12 years and older). We'll be setting up in the Exhibit Hall area (wheelchair accessible).
