SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Museum of Discovery will offer the next presentation in its science lecture series Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. in the Mars Agriculture Center at Sheridan College.
Brent Breithaupt, a paleontologist with the Bureau of Land Management in Cheyenne, will present “Big Wonderful Wyoming’s Jurassic World of Dinosaurs: Like No Place on Earth.”
Wyoming is known worldwide because of paleontological work done here over the past 150 years. In particular, the fossils and rocks exposed throughout this western state preserve Jurassic life and environments unlike anywhere else on the planet.
Consequently, past and current discoveries have dominated the media and have led to the popularization of dinosaurs and their contemporaries worldwide.
Breithaupt has been studying the geology and paleontology of the Mesozoic Era for more than 35 years and will give an entertaining and informative talk about the life and times of the animals that once roamed, swam and flew in Wyoming during the Jurassic Period, as well as the people and expeditions that unearthed these fascinating, ancient creatures, which are so well known in our popular culture.
The event is free and open to the public.
