Worth the Trip: Paleopalooza



    Unearth your inner paleontologist on Saturday Feb. 14 and Sunday Feb. 15 at The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University.

    The two-day, fossil-centric festival invites both children and adults to learn about fossils and extinct reptilians, through a series of activities and events.

    Scientists will be present on site to showcase rare Devonian fossils they dug up in Central Pennsylvania.

    You can expect to take a stroll through Dinosaur Hall, engage in fossil hunts and participate in discussions about dinosaurs.

    You can even meet Buddy T-rex, the star of Dinosaur Train!, as he walks through the museum and learn to draw a dinosaur like a professional, as paleo-illustrator Jason Pole demonstrates how to bring the drawings to life.

    Admission is $15 for individuals over 13 and $13 for children from three to 12, and includes access to all programming.

    Tickets can be purchased at The Academy of Natural Sciences website.
