November 01, 2006 Port Discover continues its monthly Second Saturday Science program on November 11 with Dinosaur Discovery. Naturalists from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences will lead an exploration into the awe-inspiring world of dinosaurs. Children will learn about the habits of dinosaurs while comparing live animals to these prehistoric wonders. Some of the live animals featured during Dinosaur Discover could be a small alligator, Madagascar hissing cockroaches, a turtle, and a lizard or ball python. The program begins at 1 p.m. and is geared to elementary aged children. The program is free, however due to limited space, reservations are required.
