Talks & Lectures

Join the Friends of Dinosaur Ridge for a series of talks/lectures on dinosaurs, geology, and other related Earth Science topics. A list of upcoming talks can be found at the bottom of this page.

Everything Dinosaur Talk Series
This series was put together to serve as an informational series for volunteers and staff, but is also held as an evening talk series for any that would like to attend!

As Volunteer Talks:
Are you looking at volunteering here at Dinosaur Ridge but are you worried you don’t know enough about dinosaurs? Not to worry – Everything Dinosaur Talk Series is perfect for you! Learn about different groups of dinosaurs as well as what dinosaurs are, and then take that knowledge on a tour or into our exhibit hall with you!

These talks take place weekly from January to early April every Tuesday morning from 10am to 11:00-11:30am. These talks will repeat on Friday from 10am to 11:00-11:30am if enough people RSVP (we need at least three attendees) if you’re unable to make Tuesday mornings.
