Ahoy, mateys! Cap’n Dave has misplaced his library card somewhere at the Sherrill Kenwood Free Library and, to find it, he’ll need your help – and a bit of magic!

The show is targeted toward ages 4-10, but all are welcome!

Dinosaur Dig & Ancient Undersea Reptile Show

Tuesday, July 26th

2:00-2:45 pm

Meet Molly, the Mosasaur, a fifteen-foot ancient undersea reptile, discovered by paleontologists Mike and Roberta Straka!  You’ll get to explore what life was like in the sea 70 million years ago as well as meet other creatures that lived with Molly.  The program has a little bit of everything-audience participation, show and tell with rare fossils (even bugs!) and even a dinosaur dig!  The program is intended for grades K-8.


Capn’ Dave’s Magic Treasure Hunt and the Dinosaur Dig & Ancient Undersea Reptile Show are sponsored by the Friends of the Sherrill-Kenwood Free Library and Stewart’s Shops
