“Eyes in the front likes to hunt; eyes on the side likes to hide.”

We thank Scott McKenzie for an excellent presentation on birds/dinosaurs! Next month’s Penn Dixie science talk: more dinos with Glen LaPlaca from Past & Present.

Who were the dinosaurs?

Tonight at 7 PM in the Gateway Building Auditorium, 3556 Lakeshore Rd. Blasdell, NY.

Dr. Scott McKenzie presents a fun and informative examination of what the dinosaurs were really like. Our movies, internet and text books are all out of date. Today, we can know what they looked like, how they lived and perhaps what they were like emotionally! We will look at their eyes, their size, their colors and their living relatives.

Dinosaurs are more than bones, they were (and are) real animals that lived in an ecosystem as dynamic and as beautiful as our own!
