Ancient Oceans & Underground “Lakes” of Kansas

July 28, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Did you know Kansas used to be home to a thriving ocean ecosystem? No way! Prehistoric sharks, fish, flippered and winged reptiles lived in an ancient Kansas sea over 65 million years ago.
Join us to learn more with a special presentation from scientists at the Kansas Geological Survey. Paleontologist Hannah Horinek invites participants to learn about the animals that called Kansas home during the time of the dinosaurs, when the state was covered in a shallow seaway. Afterwards, we will fast forward millions of years to learn from water expert Brownie Wilson and get a 10,000 foot view of water in Kansas today, including where it is found, how it is used, and what the future holds.
