MCAS November Virtual Community Program 

Title: The Dinosaurs Amongst Us


Presenter: Kim Adelson, President of Black Hills Audubon Society


When: Monday, November 20th, 2023, 7:00 pm


Description: Virtually all paleontologists agree that birds evolved from dinosaurs, and most even go so far as to state that birds are, in fact, living dinosaurs. The flood of new data coming from newly discovered fossil beds – primarily from China – has only solidified that position. Come learn about the structural and behavioral similarities between birds and the more “classic” dinosaurs they evolved from. We guarantee that you will not only be surprised as to how dinosaur-like birds are, but also how very bird-like dinosaurs were.  You will never think about T. rex in the same way again!


Bio: Kim Adelson was a professor of psychology for almost 30 years. Before she switched fields so as to better study behavioral evolution, she earned a master’s degree in evolutionary biology. Paleontology has been one of her avocations since she was a child. She is currently president of the Black Hills Audubon Society, where she also chairs the Education Committee.
