The second annual Dino Shindig is fast approaching! The Dino Shindig is hosted by the Carter County Museum in Ekalaka, Montana midway through the paleontological field season. Burpee Museum was proud to be a part of the inaugural Shindig weekend and is honored to be part of it once again this year! Last year’s Shindig hosted Dr. Jack Horner (Museum of the Rockies), Dr. Thomas Carr (Carthage College), Dr. Mark Goodwin (University of California-Berkeley Museum of Paleontology), Dr. Tyler Lyson (Smithsonian Museum of Natural Hstory), Dr. Joseph Peterson (University of Wisconsin-Whitewater), Dr. Thomas Holtz (University of Maryland) and Burpee Museum’s very own Scott Williams.
This year’s Dino Shindig will take place over the weekend of July 26 & 27, 2014. If you happen to be in Southeast Montana (or are planning to travel to that area) the Shindig is a wonderful, family friendly event that draws world-class speakers to the museum (see below for a list of speakers) to educate the public about the amazing paleontological resources and discoveries in the area. Talks will be on Saturday July 26, and a dinosaur expedition (limited spaces available) will take place on Sunday July 27. The Shindig webpage has additional information about pricing and registration, and you can stay up to date about the Shindig on Carter County Museum’s Facebook page. If you’re able, we hope you’ll head to the Carter County Museum in Ekalaka to check out the Dino Shinding, its bound to be a great time!
