Dinosaur discoveries afoot in Albuquerque

June 14, 2013 by  

Next week, Albuquerque is to celebrate ‘100 years of Collecting Dinosaurs in the San Juan Basin’.

The day will allow people to come out and learn about some of the most recent famous dinosaurs discovered and learn about the paleontologists’ history as guests of the Dinosaurs Discovery Symposium. Poster printing, flyer printing, and other printing services may have been used to promote and facilitate this event to people interested in the new findings in this region.

During the event, guests will hear from the renowned Dr. Robert Sullivan, who is a Research Associate from the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. As the presenting lecturer, Dr. Sullivan will provide an overview of the past 100 years, over which specimens of dinosaurs like the Parasaurolophus, Pentaceratops, and Tyrannosaurus Rex have been collected in the San Juan Basin, which is home to some of the most well-known dinosaur exhibits.

Guests can learn how these mammoth animals were brought to life, what life was like when these great beasts roamed the earth, and what may have caused them to become extinct. This session is part of the 100 years of Collecting Dinosaurs in the San Juan Basin series.

Admission to this session ranges between $4 and $8 per person, and it will be happening on Tuesday, June 18, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science located at 1801 Mountain Road NW in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
