About

Dino Days will activate the Hartman Prehistoric Garden, transforming it into a vibrant showcase of botanical wonders from the Cretaceous Period. It will captivate visitors, offering an educational journey through the geological history of Austin and highlighting prehistoric plants as they spring to life. Through dynamic exhibits and interactive activities, Dino Days celebrates plant diversity and evolution while fostering community engagement through volunteer opportunities. Join us for the kickoff or celebrate the closing party with a dinosaur parade–better yet, get Cretaceous every Saturday!
