Join us online Sunday, April 26, 10 AM – 2 PM for our virtual I Dig Dinos: Dino Environments event!

What did our planet look like during the Age of Dinosaurs?

Earth's environment hasn't always looked the way it does now. During the Mesozoic or "Age of Dinosaurs," plants were evolving and changing into some of the plants we know and love today. One way we learn about the history of these plants is through their fossils.

This month we're digging into this exciting topic with hands-on activities you can do at home!

You asked and the expert answered! 

Burke Curator of Paleobotany Dr. Caroline Strömberg answers questions about what plants were like in the Age of Dinosaurs in this special Q&A video.
