Glen Canyon Lecture Series Presents
Keynote presentation for the Big Water Dinosaur Festival by Dr. Joseph Sertich
Friday October 4, 2013, 7:00 p.m. (Mountain Standard Time) at Page Safety Facility, 808 Coppermine Road – Page, Arizona
Dr. Joseph Sertich, Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology Department of Earth Sciences, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, looks at the effects of global changes, like climate and shifting continents, on the evolution of dinosaurs and crocodiles. During the Mesozoic, shifting continents and fluctuating sea levels created a dynamic global system, influencing the distribution of animals and the evolution of terrestrial ecosystems. New fossil discoveries in western North America, Madagascar, and Africa are the focus of his research.
Admission is free. The Glen Canyon Lecture Series is sponsored by Glen Canyon Natural History Association, Powell Museum, and Page Public Library in partnership with the Big Water Dinosaur Festival for this special event!
