Our friend Scott Williams, Burpee Museum of Natural History’s resident dinosaur expert (actually, his title is Director of Science and Exhibits, but dinosaur expert just sounds cooler–and he is a dinosaur expert) stopped by the WROK studios this morning to talk “PaleoFest 2017.”

This Saturday and Sunday, PaleoFest is back to celebrate 19 years of fun with fossils and dinosaurs.¬†For an event like this to keep growing and gaining popularity, you know that they’re doing something right at Burpee.

Whether you’re an adult or a kid, there will be something to grab your interest at this year’s PaleoFest, especially the talk that will be given by PaleoFest’s keynote speaker,¬†Matthew C. Lamanna Ph.D., Carnegie Museum of Natural History. His topic for the evening is “From Egypt to Antarctica: Discovering Extraordinary New Dinosaurs in the Southern Continents.”

So, whatever your level of fossil or dino interest might be, Burpee will have a speaker and/or activity for you.
