Travel Back in Time at Dinosaur Park
February 1, 2019
More than a hundred million years ago, the population of Prince George’s County looked drastically different than it does today. It was composed entirely of dinosaurs. The massive creatures live on long after their extinction at Dinosaur Park, a local spot dedicated to preserving the legacy of these prehistoric creatures.
Did you know that Maryland has its own state dinosaur? It’s called the Astrodon johnstoni, and you’ll learn all about the enormous creature at Dinosaur Park—you can even see some of its bones and teeth! You can also brush up on your history of the local flora thanks to fossils made by Maryland’s earliest flowering plants. Check out the interactive exhibits and enjoy some fresh air at Dinosaur Park, or come for a guided program on the first and third Saturday of each month from noon to 4 p.m.
