BEST PLACE TO LAY DOWN YOUR TOWEL
Park near the Tybee Beach Beach and Pavilion (Tybrisa St, Tybee Island, GA 31328) use the bridge in front of the Tybee Island Marine Center turn right and walk towards the rock formation close to the sand dunes.

Fernbank Museum Announces Dinosaur Month


Come Celebrate Dinosaurs At The South’s Best Natural History Museum

Fernbank Museum of Natural History has declared August Dinosaur Month. Of course no Fernbank celebration is complete without events, crafts, throwbacks and some exciting ways to learn.

Throughout the month, Fernbank will be posting throwback photos on social media channels honoring the many places visitors can encounter dinosaurs throughout the Museum. Fernbank will also offer dinosaur-themed editions of the popular story-time program, Tadpole Tales, on August 16 and 17, and of the family-friendly Weekend Wonders program every Saturday and Sunday throughout the month.

 

On Saturday, August 23 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., Fernbank will host its annual Dinosaur Birthday Bash to celebrate the anniversary of theGiants of the Mesozoic exhibit. The exhibition was the first time the world saw the full skeletons of the world’s largest dinosaurs—the 123-foot-long Argentinosaurus and the 47-foot-long Giganotosaurus.

This exciting day will feature DJ Willy Wow, who will entertain guests with festive music, dancing and interactive activities. The day will also include a hands-on opportunity to dig for dinosaurs in a mock dinosaur dig led by Fernbank’s experienced educators. “Giggy A. Dinosaur,” the Museum’s popular mascot, will be in attendance. Visitors can also come face-to-face with an additional Gigonotosaurusskull, offering a rare opportunity to investigate the massive six-foot-long skull up close. Dinosaur Birthday Bash will also feature the Georgia Bubbleman, fun games and dinosaur temporary tattoos. No birthday party is complete without birthday wishes, and to ensure a festive party, guests are invited to craft their own birthday hat and join in on a happy birthday sing-along with “Giggy.”

Throughout August, the entire Museum will get into the dinosaur spirit by providing photo opportunities, dinosaur craft tutorials on the Fernbank blog, fossil FUN carts, giveaways and scavenger hunts.
