Fall is the perfect time to enjoy a visit to Field Station: Dinosaurs, located at Bergen County’s Overpeck Park (40 Fort Lee Road, Leonia NJ). The Field Station has reopened for fall weekends through November 12.
The fun happens each Saturday and Sunday with a special “Super Stars of Science” program as Paleontologist Jason Schein shows off his findings from his recent dino dig in Wyoming. He’ll provide insight about the amazing things that a Paleontologist actually does. This real-life Indiana Jones will be joined by the Field Station’s own Brooke Rowzee who has accompanied Jason on his digs the past three years. Continue the learning and the fun with Jason’s own coloring book, A Dynasty of Dinosaurs.
Friday and Saturday nights beginning at 7:00 pm on September 29 and each consecutive weekend through October 28, guests will be able to see the T-Rex like they’ve never seen it before during Dinosaurs After Dark. This special after-hours experience allows families to explore the trails and the park by flashlight. It’s spooky and silly, often at the same time! This unique family experience includes interactive live shows and will answer the 65-million-year-old question, “Did Dinosaurs See in the Dark?” The night ends with a dinosaur sing-along complete with a campfire and roasted marshmallows.
Scout Day takes place Saturday, October 7th. Meet the experts in topics ranging from bugs to camping to lizards. Try out hands-on activities that are applicable to Brownie and Girl Scout Badges, Cub Scout belt loops and Boy Scout merit badges. All Scouts in uniform will earn a commemorative patch!
Regular hours for the Field Station will be from 10am – 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays starting September 23 through November 12 with tickets starting at $15. To purchase tickets, call (855) 999-9010.
