Dino footprints examined at Casper College's Tate Geological Museum

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. “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,” said Patti Finkle, director of museums. Hawley, Tate Geological Museum education specialist, “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,” Finkle noted. 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. #oilcity #whatshappening
