Join us as Burpee Museum celebrates 25 years of PaleoFest, with research talks from paleontologists around the world, and special activities and programming! 

Dino lovers, rock collectors, and fossil diggers unite for an internationally attended festival. Our audience includes scientists and researchers, aspiring scientists, students, and paleo lovers, and even dino-loving kiddos! Many of the talks will focus on our speakers' cutting edge research and amazing new discoveries. 

Students, interested community members, and aspiring scientists are encouraged to join the experts as they share stories, research, and experiences. It is a great opportunity to make connections and become inspired!
