Tate Lecture Looks At Dinosaur Footprints
The “Dinosaurs of Wyoming” lecture series continues with “Dinosaur Footprints of the World” presented by Russell Hawley, on Thursday, March 24 at 7 p.m.
Patti Finkle, director of museums said,
“When the topic of dinosaur fossils is mentioned, most people think of bones. But a surprising amount of information can be gleaned from the careful study of dinosaur footprints, we will discuss the history of dinosaur footprint discoveries, including some made right here in Wyoming, the challenges of identifying specific dinosaur track-makers, and the insights that fossil footprints can provide about dinosaur behavior, physiology and locomotion
The final lecture in the series, “Dinosaurs of the Lance and Hell Creek Formations,” by Peter L. Larson will take place on Thursday, April 14.
All presentations in the lecture series are free and open to the public, and will take place in the Wheeler Auditorium, Room 103 in the Wold Physical Science Center on the Casper College campus.
