Scientists in Action: Bygone Bugs & Prehistoric Flowers

Program Description

Sixty-six million years ago, insects crawled, hopped, and flew alongside dinosaurs that lived in a subtropical area that is today's Front Range of Colorado. Unbeknownst to critters living at the time, the world would be dramatically changed by a mass extinction event that would do away with 75% of all life on Earth. But did bugs die with the dinosaurs? And how have they changed since then? Join us to study flora and fauna hidden within the rocks of the Corral Bluffs dig site. Sixty-six million years in the making, this un-bee-lievable virtual field trip will wow you. Sign up today!
