Antarctica today is a forbidding land of snow and ice—but dinosaurs thrived there 200 million years ago in a lush, forested environment. Opening on June 15, a new exhibition at The Field Museum follows scientists on a search for never-before-seen fossils and sheds new light on our planet’s changing climate and geology.

On June 24, Tom Skwerski, exhibitions operations director at the Field, will come to the library to share an insider’s view of the Antarctic Dinosaurs exhibit. He will show slides of fossils from four Antarctic species, including the 25-foot-long Cryolophosaurus, and discuss the tough working conditions for the team that discovered them. He also will describe how exhibit visitors get to use real tools to experience how paleontologists extracted fossils from the frozen landscape.

In his 11-year tenure at the Field, Mr. Skwerski has managed over 20 exhibitions, including China’s First Emperor and His Terracotta WarriorsAntarctic Dinosaurs was developed by The Field Museum, Chicago in partnership with the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Discovery Place, and the Natural History Museum of Utah. It will be on display in Chicago until January 6, 2019.

This program is suitable for adults and for older (upper elementary-aged) children.
