What you'll do
We'll begin with an in-depth tour of our Past Worlds gallery and end with a behind-the-scenes visit inside our Paleo Lab. In the gallery, we will talk about dinosaurs found in Utah (some known exclusively from our own collections) and explore the ecosystems and adaptations that make these animals so fascinating. Inside the Paleo Lab, we will get a sneak peek at the the projects that our paleontology volunteers are working on and learn about the techniques used to prepare our most recent discoveries.
Natural History Museum Of Utah
Hi, I’m Spencer Bronte. I have been passionately in love with dinosaurs for as long as I can remember. I have worked at the Natural History Museum of Utah for over 6 years, and I’ve studied dinosaur paleontology for many more. I have found and excavated fossils in the field, prepared them in the laboratory, and cared for them in our collections. I simply love dinosaurs, and I love sharing the science behind these fascinating animals with you!
