Science City

Science City
Originally uploaded by SideShowMom.
The stair goes up to an area with mounted birds-the most common in our area-and a microphone to listen to bird calls on. At the foot of the tree is a cave area with stalagtites and stalagmites, crystals and spelunking gear and a bat call area. It opens to the dig site at the Dino Lab where a real Paleontologist is working on the fossilized bones of a Camarasaurus he found in Montana (I'm pretty sure). You can watch him and another guy freeing the fossils from rock and see the field jackets they were transported and stored in (plaster and toilet paper coccoons for the fossils and surrounding rock so nothing gets lost or damaged). I was sitting up a hallway from the tree, by the playground where my kids were busy climbing the jungle gym and making soap bubbles. We have a Family Membership to Union Station, our second year, and will spend lots of time here on hot days! During the World-wide Sketchcrawl. At Union Station, Kansas City, Missouri.
