Works begins on cleaning the field jacket after it was opened Saturday morning during Dino Day at the Virginia Museum of Natural History. Working on the project are (from left) volunteers Kathy Fell and Marsha Lewis, Dr. Alton Dooley of the museum, and Dr. John Happ, who found the dinosaur remains.(Bulletin photos by Mike Wray) Joe Keiper (right), executive director of the museum, shows a field jacket containing fossil bones to Sydney Mintz, 11, of Huddleston, at the Dino Day festival. Keiper took Sydney into the lab to give her a closeup view of the work on the jacket because she wants to be a paleontologist when she grows up. Carson Holley, 2 1/2, of Ferrum, was thrilled with the animatronic dinosaur on display at the museum.
About 1,100 people attended Dino Day at the Virginia Museum of Natural History on Saturday. Chandler Mitchell, 11, of Martinsville, spent a lot of time at Saturday’s Dino Day festival watching “Speedy” the turtle swim in his tank. The event featured many activities and programs for children as well as adults.
