Montana State University’s Museum of the Rockies will celebrate Jack Horner Family Day with a variety of activities from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, May 21, at the museum.
The events will celebrate Horner, who is retiring at the end of the month following a 33-year career in the field with MSU and the museum. Horner will be at the museum to speak with visitors, as will members of his field crews. Heavy-duty trucks and vehicles used in paleontological digs will also be on display.
Horner joined the museum in 1982 when it had three specimens. He has expanded the museum’s collection, to more than 35,000 fossils, and established the largest paleontology field program in the country at MSU.
