Dino Dig

An Excavation Extravaganza!

Become an EcoTarium Paleontologist and join in an excavation to discover dinosaur bones from these amazing reptiles. We will excavate dinosaur bones and other ancient fossils locked deep in the earth.  Use a variety of tools and techniques to bring these fossils to the surface.  Afterwards, we'll also complete a fun take home dino activity that's sure to impress any paleontologist.  

Then, join in a fun dinosaur game or two!  After game time, we will march to the lower courtyard of the museum to take a group photo with the EcoTarium's own dinosaur, Siegfried the Stegosaurus.  Be sure to bring a camera!
