Tonight will hold the first in a trio of public talks dedicated to the science of paleontology -- the field of uncovering the mysteries of prehistoric life.
It will happen tonight at 7 p.m. in the Fortin Center Auditorium on the campus of Rocky Mountain College. The school's Geology department is hosting the event with the Bureau of Land management.
Tonight's talk, "Dinosaur hunting: a brief history of paleontology" will be given by Greg Liggett, a paleontologist with the Bureau of Land Management.
Liggett will also present "Dinosaurs and other beasties from Montana" on Oct. 30, elaborating on the prehistoric life of Montana and what it teaches us about past climates, environments and ecosystems.
And then on Nov. 14, the Cincinnati Museum Center's Curator of Vertebrate
Paleontology, Greg Storrs, will present "A decade of dinosaurs: the Cincinnati Museum Center Dinosaur Field School."
Storrs has spent over a decade in south central Montana collecting fossils at the Mother's Day Site. He will share what he has learned there about the lives of long-necked dinosaurs.
