Our Journey So Far
How It All Started
When I was a kid, I loved dinosaurs. I read everything about them that I could. Then, I forgot about them for a while and moved on to vampires, zombies, mummies, and other fun kid things.
Dinos Are So Cool
But, trust me: I had NOT outgrown dinosaurs. Whether it was on school field trips or traveling around America and the world, anytime I had the chance to visit a natural history museum, I did. I was amazed at the humongous skeletons or replicas of the most famous dinosaurs. I went to some dig sites and saw how paleontologists search for, find, and protect fossils.
