Visitors “Dug” Dino Days

Last weekend we hosted Dino Days, an event dedicated to all things prehistoric. It turned out to be a fantastic weekend, despite the uncooperative weather.

Our special guest for this 2-day event was Chris DeLorey, also known as Dr. Dino, Director of Education at the Brevard Zoo. As a paleontologist and dinosaur expert, he’s gone on many digs and has traveled all over the world. He brought fossils and artifacts from his personal collection to share with guests, gave special presentations in our Program Center, and answered all kinds of dino-related questions!

  • Dr. Dino giving his exciting “Dino Hunt” presentation

  • We didn’t let rain put a “damp”er on the weekend–but umbrellas were a must!

  • Dr. Dino sharing his artifacts (and knowledge) with guests

  • Taking a break from the weather

  • Sabian enjoyed making his very own fossil rubbing book

  • …and so did his little sister!

  • The Prehistoric Prize Package that children could enter to win

Kids could create their very own fossil rubbing book, and enter to win our Prehistoric Prize Package filled with dino-themed goodies! They also got to take home real dinosaur bone fragments courtesy of Dr. Dino.

It was a fun, educational weekend, and based on all the positive feedback we received, we’re anxious to outdo ourselves next year with another DINO-mite event!
