What did our planet look like during the Age of Dinosaurs? Learn about dino environments by touching prehistoric plant fossils and exploring the UW campus to see modern plants similar to ones you would have seen if you were alive during dinosaur times!

Bring your budding paleontologist to explore fossilized fun at five hands-on stations designed especially for early learners. Themes change each month to showcase not only dinosaurs but other types of fossils before and after the Age of Dinosaurs. Hold fossils and casts at the touch table, make scientific discoveries in the dig pit, engage in dramatic play, try our dino/not dino sorting game, and create a craft to take home.

Our fossil lab is always active on I Dig Dino Sundays! Get this month’s Dig Challenge, then head for the 3rd floor on a Jurassic quest to see the latest fossils being prepared in the paleontology lab, explore our fossil exhibit, and earn your prehistoric prize!

Please note: I Dig Dinos is open to everyone but is geared toward ages 3–7.
