March started off great! Nick Wiersum and I spent yesterday afternoon talking about dinosaurs at the Fountaindale Library. The library had prepared their largest meeting room for our Digging for Dinosaurs program, complete with freshly popped popcorn, coloring sheets, dino toys, and a couple tables filled with dinosaur books. At the end of our interactive presentation, I was able to show a preview of the short dino digging documentary I’m working on.
Jeff from the library informed me that we had about 87 people at the peak, and checked out as many as half of the dinosaur books! Although most of the attendees were too young to participate in future field work, they may be future visitors at the Dinosaur Discovery Museum. Overall, it was a success!
UPDATE: Fountaindale Library’s Media Center, Studio 300, also posted about our dino program!
