Dinosaur Day Science Fest is back! That’s right, the Sierra College Natural History Museum is once again hosting this incredibly popular event! Over the course of the past 50 years the Sierra College Natural History Museum has been providing tours, hosting lectures and, of course, hosting community events like Dinosaur Day. The public is invited to celebrate the Museum’s 50th anniversary at this year’s event.

There will be so much to do at this year’s event! Meet slithery snake and interesting insects and see scientists blowing up watermelons. Get officially checked for cooties! Kids can decorate their own Dino “Cookie” and make a tie-dye t-shirt. Young would-be scientists will be able to make their own slime too! The Museum will be holding Planetarium Shows. (Please note that there are limited tickets available for this event). We will also dissect some hearts and eyes. Sorry zombies, these are not for eating. There will be silent auctions and drawings. Take a spin on the DinoWheel to test your dinosaur knowledge and a chance to win prizes. There will be glowing bacterial art and face painting too. Meet actual paleontologists and watch them prepare real fossils. Kids can hunt for fossils in the fossil sandbox. There will be many activities for young explorers.

Make a day of it and bring a picnic lunch to the event, or better yet, get some good eats from Good Dog hot dogs and then a smoothie from the Coffee Cruiser.

This year’s event will be held on Sunday, May 1, from 9:00 am–4:00 pm, at the Sierra College Rocklin Campus, located at 5000 Rocklin Road in Rocklin, CA.

Tickets may be purchased at the event or in advance at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2500931. We suggest that you purchase tickets early to avoid lines on the day of the event. Parking at the event is free.

  • Adults: $10.00
  • Children ages 4-12, $7:00
  • Children under 4 are free.

The Sierra College Natural History Museum is pleased to be able to host this event again this year. The event has held a special place for young and old alike in the region. The Museum is a volunteer run organization and all monies raised at this event go towards maintaining the exhibits and offering great programs open to the public.
