Living Dinosaurs of the Peace Region

Saturday, January 20 • 3:00pm • Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum, Aykroyd Family Theatre

The Grande Prairie area is designated as one of Canada’s many important bird areas, and is rich in a variety of birdlife. Many charismatic species which are uncommon or rare in other parts of the province continue to thrive here, such as trumpeter swans and bald eagles. As the last living dinosaurs, birds hold a special interest to both palaeontologists and naturalists in general. The Peace Region is, deservedly, becoming more and more well known as a rich trove of dinosaur fossils, and the birdlife of the region represents a continuation of the dinosaur legacy that survives here to this day. Anyone interested in natural history will benefit from knowing and understanding the diversity of our living dinosaurs.
