Event Description:

Carolina Piedmont Seminar Series

The fossils that make headlines always seem to come from points west and across the oceans. But the Carolinas have their own account of the Age of Dinosaurs. From “raptors” and “duck-bills” to a T-rex cousin, take a closer look at the prehistoric Piedmont and the evidence of our own “lost world.” This is the second in a series of seminars on the Carolina Piedmont through time.

January 23: From the Depths of the Earth and Ocean
March 20: Rise and Reign of the Mammals
