Salacious in the Cretaceous - Erin LaCount
Erin LaCount is the Dr. Ruth of Dinosaurs.   Erin's has presented on the topic of how dinosaurs have sex for the Denver Zoo and Dinsosaur Ridge for several years now.  The funny and thought provoking presentation is really impossible to represent in the newsletter.    If you missed the presentation....sorry.   However, use the link to checkout Dinosaur Ridge and all the cool tracks and stuff they illustrate.  Thanks Erin for your time and entertaining presentation.  
 
 
Reminder:  Our club now meets at the Rendezvous Restaurant at Heather Gardens.  Same time....new location:  Rendezvous Restaurant 2888 S Heather Gardens Way, Aurora, CO 80014.
