What Happened to the Dinosaurs?

SPECIAL TO THE FORUM



Ever wonder what happened to the dinosaurs?

It’s a real-world “cold case” mystery, but it’s not a couple of decades old. That and other mass extinctions are several hundred million years old.

 

At the next Castro Valley Educational Foundation lecture, Dr. Peter Roopnarine, Curator of the California Academy of Sciences, will discuss the relationship of mass extinctions and climate-change throughout the natural history of the earth.

 

The lecture, free and open to the public, will take place at the Castro Valley Center for the Arts at 7 p.m. next Thursday, Nov. 15. Questions from the audience at the end of the lecture will be welcomed.

 

This is the second lecture in the CVEF series, which bring world-class scientists and experts to our community. Earlier this year, Dr. Henry Gilbert of Cal State East Bay discussed early human origins in Africa.

 

“CVEF sponsors educational activities that support the curriculum and complement classroom instruction,” said Jim Negri, Castro Valley School Superintendent. “We greatly appreciate the work of CVEF to bring valuable opportunities to our students.” 

 

The next lecture will be on Jan. 10, when Dr. Kathleen Pollard of the Gladstone Institutes and UC San Francisco will talk about what makes us human.



 

Gary Howard and Winda Shimizu are CVEF Board Members. Visit www.cvef.org for more details about the Foundation Science lectures series.
