Staff ReportDiggindinos

On Friday, July 10 the Discovery Center, 711 N. Main St., will be offering several activities in the outdoor dinosaur quarry from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

Those attending will have the chance to uncover a mystery, play with plaster, test their mastery of the Mesozoic in the dinosaur game show and use their Cretaceous creativity.

Attendees will also get to touch real dinosaur bones, talk to a paleontologist and get a feel for fossils in this hands-on day of fun in the dirt.

All activities are included with Discovery Center admission.

Diggin’ Dinos is part of Discovery Center’s summer Family Friday series which focus on a specific subject matter and then explore that subject through various means, including activities, demonstrations, make-and-take projects, performances and the like.

All activities are included with general admission to Discovery Center.

General admission: $8 adults; $8 children ages 2-17; free to Discovery Center Members and children age 1 and younger.

Family Fridays are made possible by presenting sponsor Meijer with additional support from the Illinois Arts Council, a State Agency.
