Burke offers series of talks on paleontology beginning March 30
Can extinction be good? You can explore the answer to this question and more with Burke Museum paleontology curators in a series of Tuesday talks inspired by the Cruisin’ the Fossil Freeway exhibit. Attendees will learn about current research in paleontology from the people who do it, and how the study of fossils informs our understanding of evolution and extinction.
All lectures are at the Burke Museum and start at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 pm for previewing. Schedule:
- March 30: Liz Nesbitt, Burke curator of invertebrate paleontology
- April 13: Christian Sidor, Burke curator of vertebrate paleontology
- April 27: Caroline Stromberg, Burke curator of paleobotany
- May 4: Greg Wilson, Burke adjunct curator of vertebrate paleontology
Tickets are $5 per lecture; free for Burke members, students, and educators with ID. Up to four clock hour of credit are available for educators.
