Monster in the Hollow: The Story of Missouri’s Ozark Dinosaur

Friday, December 7, 2012 @ 1:00 PM-3:00 PM

On Science Series

Featured Speaker: Michael Fix, Associate Teaching Professor of Geology; Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Missouri – St. Louis.

Professor Fix working on a partial skeleton of the Missouri State Dinosaur – Hypsibema missouriense at the Bollinger County Museum of Natural History.

Join Missouri Ozark Dinosaur Project geologist, Michael Fix, as he explores the Chronister Site – Missouri’s only known dinosaur find, from the accidental discovery of dinosaur fossils there in the 1940s to the eventual scientific excavations many decades later and the major fossil discoveries that resulted from those early stumbled-upon bones. You’ll be transported back to the late Cretaceous period some 75 million years ago when dinosaurs and other prehistoric monsters roamed our state.
