  • Dinosaurs: What Really Killed the Dinosaurs
Professor Alan Capelle (Madison College – Earth Science/Geology) is back this summer with another intriguing mystery – the end of the dinosaur reign! Join with me on some time travel back to the Cretaceous Period of Earth’s History to unravel this ongoing debate! A field trip to the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago is planned. If time permits, we will also explore the ‘Great Dying’ Mass Extinction at the end of the Permian as well. Be prepared to adjust your misconceptions regarding the demise of the great Dinosaurs as we travel back in time.
