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.
