What was the earth like millions of years ago? Find out at Dino Dig presented by the Burke Museum and the North Olympic Library System.

Dino Dig will take place from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 8, at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.

Similar sessions are held at the Forks Library (10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.) and Port Angeles Library (4-6 p.m.) on Tuesday, Aug. 7.

At Dino Dig, children take a journey through geologic time as they examine real fossils, rocks and minerals, as well as cast replicas of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals and plants.

There will be opportunities to unearth fossils in dig pits, learn about the work of paleontologists and geologists, and imagine the amazing life that once inhabited the planet.

The Burke Museum is a research- and collections-based museum located in Seattle. It serves many audiences and communities including Washington state residents, tourists and visitors to Seattle, educators and students, Indigenous and Pacific communities, and researchers, scholars and enthusiasts. The 16 million objects (and counting) in the Burke collections are used for education and research throughout the state of Washington.

The events are part of the North Olympic Library System’s 2018 Summer Reading Program, themed “Libraries Rock!” For more information about the Summer Reading Program and other events, visit, call 360-417-8500 or email to
