Press Preview of this event
Hear the thoughts of Jaclyn Layman who is beyond excited to bring her young son to Dino Day!

* For the Fossil hunt, we hope weather will permit it to be held outdoors however if conditions are not ideal another comparable activity will happen indoors!   We hope that all of our young visitors can collect just one fossil egg during the hunt and appreciate everyone’s understanding to ensure the best experience for all!
