The Vancouver Island Paleontological Society and the Courtenay and District Museum will present a special lecture on paleontology, Sunday, March 13, with Graham Beard, co-author of the book West Coast Fossils as guest speaker.
The presentation is about the paleontological evolution of pterosaurs, those amazing reptiles that could fly.
Pterosaurs lived during the Mesozoic era, and that is over 150 million years of evolution, then they became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous Period.
The first fossil pterosaur was found in 1783.
Fossil pterosaurs have been found on every continent and there are about 150 different species now known.
Graham Beard is an expert in the field of paleontology and fossils and will answer any questions you may have on the subject. Public is welcome.
The lecture goes from 1:15-3 p.m. Admission is free.
Following the lecture the VIPS will hold its AGM.
