Uncover the fascinating evolutionary history of dinosaurs with Jenna Rolle, M.S., one of the paleontologists behind our dinosaur exhibits and an instructor in the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department at Santa Barbara City College.

Picture the California landscape when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.
