BLM to celebrate new Big Water Visitor Center Dinosaur Exhibits
On April 21, the Bureau of Land Management will host an open house event to unveil new dinosaur exhibits at the Big Water Visitor Center, located at 100 Revolution Way, in Big Water, Utah. The exhibits tell the story of ceratopsian dinosaur evolution across time and oceans, and feature seven skull cast reproductions of different horned dinosaur species, including new discoveries from Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (GSENM). The open house will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. (Utah time). Light refreshments will be served.
As part of the event, GSENM Paleontologist Dr. Alan Titus will provide two presentations entitled Discovering the Great Horned Dinosaurs. Titus will highlight significant revelations uncovered by ceratopsian researchers and what importance these insights hold for humanity. Presentations will begin at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. (UT time), last about half-hour, and are free.
