CANCELLED: Hardcore Natural History - When Plants Ruled the Earth: The Legacy of the Carboniferous

The Museum Will Be Closed From March 13 To March 28, 2020. Check Back For Updates.

The Carboniferous Period of geologic time stands as a critical period in the history of the earth. Dr. Edward Clifton will describe how a combination of plate tectonics, global climate change and the evolution of land plants converged to create the coal resources that fueled the Industrial Revolution. We will visit the vast swamps that covered much of North America, Europe and Asia, noting the unique flora and fauna of the time. Wear everyday clothes - the Carboniferous climate was more like that of today than nearly any other period of geologic time. But you might want to bring repellent - Carboniferous insects were huge!
