Exciting new analytical methods and fossil discoveries shed new light on the history of life, impact events, climate change, extinction events and the evolution of the planet. These topics will be examined through advances in paleontology that have been made in the Pikes Peak Region of Colorado. Everyone gets a certificate of completion, a fossil specimen and a resource CD to take home. The fee is $20.00 plus museum admission. Please bring a pen, notebook and clip board. Pre-registration is required. Call Deb at 719-686-1820 x104 to register for the class.
