Theio, the Garden of the Gods Dinosaur

Join Park Guide, Jennifer to learn about the dinosaur whose name means “belonging to the Garden of the Gods”. This program is above elementary age level. Theio is a rare dinosaur found in this area (and to date) nowhere else in the world! This is more of a mystery story than in depth science lecture. You will be amazed to hear this fossil’s journey to recognition and identification!
This indoor program meets in the Red Rocks room on the second floor.
