Enjoy refreshments, view Christa’s extensive fossil collection on display for the evening, and purchase the new book or have your copy signed by the author!

Southern Utah’s Grand Staircase region is one of the best places in the world to study the Late Cretaceous. In a relatively short period (geologically speaking!) of only 25 million years, southern Utah was at times covered with an ocean teeming with life, swampy shorelines, and massive rivers draining a huge mountain range in the west. The diversity of plant and animal life was astonishing, and the incredible fossil discoveries in these rocks have become a critical piece in a puzzle that stretches from Alaska to Mexico.

This event is free. The Glen Canyon Lecture Series is provided as a service to the community and area visitors by the following organizations:  Glen Canyon Natural History Association, Powell Museum, Page Public Library
