'Wyoming Dinosaur Discoveries' at the Tate Geological Museum

The Tate Geological Museum will look at “Dinosaurs of Wyoming” through four lectures beginning on Thursday, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. The first lecture titled “Wyoming’s Dinosaur Discoveries,” will be given by Jessica Lippincott, director of the Big Horn Basin Foundation. “ For the past 150 years, dinosaurs have been excavated from Wyoming soil. First found by Union Pacific Railroad workers, these giants drew scientists from the East Coast eager to make claims for themselves and their museums. Where did these dinosaurs from Wyoming go? 'Wyoming's Dinosaur Discoveries’ talks about Wyoming's dinosaurs and their locations around the world,” said Lippincott. Lippincott will also sign the Foundation’s recently published book “Wyoming's Dinosaur Discoveries,” which will be available for purchase at the Tate, following her talk. The other three lectures set in the series will include Brent Breithaupt on Feb. 25, Russell J. Hawley on March 24 and Peter L. Larson on April 14. All presentations in the lecture series will begin at 7 p.m., are free and open to the public, and will take place in the Tate Geological Museum located on the Casper College campus. #oilcity #whatshappening #caspercollege
