Wonderful Wildlife Shows: Discovering Dinosaurs

July 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The undisputed rockstar of dinosaur expertise is coming to the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre!

After spending a wild year in Alberta, Tim Jefferies makes his triumphant return to Ontario to share some mind-boggling facts about dinosaurs and a collection of fascinating fossils he personally excavated in the Alberta Badlands.

Get ready for a prehistoric party of epic proportions as Tim spills the beans on the incredible journey of dinosaur bones—from dusty digs to dazzling museum displays— and why Alberta is considered the holy grail for dino discoveries.

But that’s not all! Tim will take us on a crash course in fossilization magic, where you’ll learn the art of telling rocks from bones and uncover the answers to all your burning dino questions. It’s an interactive journey into the heart of the past!

Recommended for children ages 6-12.

$5 Members | $10 Non-members 
Seating is limited. Preregistration is encouraged! 

Proudly presented by Bruce Power.
