Join us this fall as we travel deep into the past to explore the age of the dinosaurs. Dinosaurs were one of the dominant groups of animals on Earth for 140 million years – that’s 700 times longer than modern humans have existed! Our class will take a journey from dinosaur’s humble beginnings as dog-sized predators, through their glory days when herbivores the size of a house battled with hungry carnivores longer than a school bus, all the way to their sudden extinction. Through outdoor activities, crafts, games and field trips we’ll become familiar with the amazing variety of dinosaur groups, become detectives of life past as we learn the techniques of paleontology, and examine the evidence of dinosaurs that lived right here in western Massachusetts.

Online registration opens Tuesday, June 16. This program is part of a series and is not open as a drop-in class. Class meets: September 15, 22, 29, October 13, 20, 27, November 17, 24, December 1. Space is limited. Non-refundable within a week of the program, all refunds incur a 10% administrative fee.
