When most people think of paleontological expeditions, they tend to envision burning deserts or cactus-studded arid badlands. However, one paleontology team heads South for their field season and actually excavates fossils in the shadow of the Transantarctic Mountains.
On Tuesday December 9th, the Bruce Museum will welcome Dr. Nathan Smith of Howard University and the Field Museum of Natural History for a lecture entitled Dinosaurs on Ice: Fossil Hunting in the Jurassic of Antarctica.
Doors open for light refreshments at 6:30 pm and the lecture begins at 7:00 pm. Science lectures are free to all members, and open to non-members for a $15 fee.
