Ultimate Dinosaurs      11/16/2014 12:00:00 AM
515-274-6868 x222
401 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway, Des Moines
Millions of years ago, the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart, and dinosaurs became passengers on these drifting land masses. The result? Dinosaurs with unusual - and sometimes bizarre - features that are different from the ones we know and love. Based on new, groundbreaking research from scientists around the world, Ultimate Dinosaurs reveals a new breed of dinosaurs that evolved in isolation in South America, Africa and Madagascar. From the tiny Buitreraptor to the massive Giganotosaurus (T. rex's bigger, badder cousin), Ultimate Dinosaurs is a fascinating study of species you may not have met before. See Ultimate Dinosaurs October 12, 2014, through April 12, 2015, at SCI!

Combat Hunger is a community-wide food and fund drive providing Iowans in need with food during the harsh winter months and increasing awareness of Iowa's critical hunger problem. Today, 1 in 8 Iowans are food insecure, meaning they lack the resources to live an adequate and healthy lifestyle. Even more alarming, 1 in 5 Iowa children does not have enough to eat. You can help by participating in this year's event. To sign up, visit www.foodbankiowa.org
