    September 8th: We'll kick off the month-long series with "Dino" Don Lessem, a scientific advisor to Jurassic Park, Dinosaur (2000) film, and Disney's Animal Kingdom as well as their respective theme park attractions. He is a writer of more than 50 popular science books, specializing in dinosaurs. He was the founder of the Dinosaur Society and the Jurassic Foundation, which collectively have raised millions of dollars for dinosaur research!

    September 15th: We're welcoming Chris Palmieri, an actor, puppeteer, and voice actor. Chris serves as lead puppeteer and works in show development for the outdoor educational theme park Field Station: Dinosaurs in New Jersey where he performs the Mighty T. rex. His most notable role is portraying the character Snug on the Universal Kids morning show Sprout House. He has worked all over the NYC area and across North America bringing characters to life on stage in productions such as Jim Henson's Dinosaur Train Live: Buddy's Big Adventure, The Little Mermaid, The Three Little Pigs and Dante's Inferno. 

    September 22nd: We're pleased to bring Paleontologist and author, Mike Everhart to the park. He'll talk about the creatures that roamed the seas, right where you’re standing! Mike wrote the book Oceans of Kansas which was released in 2005 and sold over 1,000 copies before it printed. Everhart will show that Kansas has a wealth of paleontology education hidden below the surface, which is why he stuck to studying this particular state.

    September 29th: We'll end the month-long series with certified raptor rehabilitator, Nate Mathews. He will bring a peregrine falcon and a golden eagle along with a host of other great exhibits (like a box turtle whose ancestors hung out with the dinos!).
