Free Days at CU Museum of Natural History – Jan 23
Check out the free family day on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at the UC Museum of Natural History ..Help the museum say goodbye to the Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time exhibition. Running, walking, hopping or even slithering – the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. What can we learn about how animals moved from the tracks they left behind? And what do animal movements tell us about the world in which they lived? Make your own track stamp, look at real museum specimens up close, talk to a scientist, and much more to explore.
