At The Bishop


Our monthly think + drink / science program is a forum of discussion where you can learn about science in a relaxed, informal setting. The day’s expert gives a short presentation then opens the floor for questions and discussion.

During December’s think + drink / science, we’ll take you inside the making of the Jurassic Park film and other media celebrations of dinosaurs. Presented by “Dino” Don Lessem, “Jurassic Park: Fact or Fiction” is an audience-participation experience for all ages, featuring real fossils! Can we find dinosaur DNA? Bring dinosaurs back to life? Should we? How accurate are the movie depictions of dinosaurs?

“Dino” Don Lessem, the dinosaur advisor on Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, is known worldwide for his dinosaur expertise. He has written more than 40 popular science books about dinosaurs, excavated and reconstructed skeletons of some of the largest dinosaurs that ever existed, and has a dinosaur — the Lessemsaurus, a sauropod — named for him. He also created the animals in The Bishop’s DinoVenture experience, which is open now through March 18.

Cost is $5 for members of the Discovery Society; $8 for all others. In person at The Bishop.
