Unearthed! Programs

Opportunities abound for more learning during the San Bernardino County Museum's special exhibit, "Unearthed: fossils in the museum collections," which runs from February 21 through June 20, 2004.

Gallery Talks are informal presentations by museum curators, usually accompanied by a gallery tour led by the curator. The presentations are designed to be enjoyed by all ages. Each talk starts at 1:00 p.m. and each is free with museum admission.

  • March 20, "Fossils," with Senior Curator of Geological Sciences Kathleen Springer
  • April 17, "Fossils," with Curator of Paleontology Eric Scott
  • May 15, "Minerals," with Curator of Geology J. Chris Sagebiel
  • June 19, "Fossils," with Senior Curator of Geological Sciences Kathleen Springer

Third Sundays feature free museum admission, family activities between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., and a special presentation at 2 p.m. All activities are free.

  • March 21, "Community Gardens," with Curator of Education Jolene Redvale. Although the topic is plants, not fossils, there will be a lot of "unearthing" going on, with special emphasis on activities for young children.
  • April 18, "DNA, Fossils, and Fossil DNA," with Curator of Geology Chris Sagebiel. Jurassic Park was pretty exciting on the big screen, but now you can learn about the real thing!
  • May 16, "International Museums Day." Celebrate museums with glimpses of what goes on "behind the scenes" in geology, paleontology, and other museum divisions.
  • June 20, "Rock Art of Arizona and New Mexico," with Curator of Anthropology Adella Schroth. Although this presentation does not relate directly to "Unearthed," it is scheduled on the same day the exhibit closes.

Guest Lectures are scheduled at 7:30 p.m. on selected fourth Wednesdays. Learn from experts from throughout Southern California. Lectures are structured for adults and older children and are offered free.

  • February 25, Dr. Mark Springer, University of California, Riverside, "Molecules Decipher the Evolutionary Tree of Placental Mammals."
