'Walking with Dinosaurs' Now on Display at the Harrison County Recreation Complex

CLARKSBURG -

The Harrison County Recreation Complex and 4H Center is now the home to a dinosaur exhibit.

'Walking with dinosaurs' will be on display through the end of March.

The exhibit comes from Barrackville resident and paleontologist Ray Garton.

Garton's exhibit has been featured in many different states and even different countries.

The exhibit is both educational and fun, and it's the first of its kind in West Virginia.

"This is the first time quality like this has been brought to West Virginia. All of these pieces are museum quality and it's an experience for kids and parents to enjoy. So many of us can't get to Pittsburgh and places like that to see these kinds of things so this is nice and local and they can get a taste of it here," said Mike Book, Director of Harrison County Parks and Recreation.

The exhibit will be free and open to the public and school groups.

Kids will also have the chance to sleep among the dinosaurs.

The exhibit is open to the public weeknights from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Any child between the ages of six and 13 can sign up to sleep with the dinosaurs.

The sleepover will take place on both February 21 and 28 and every Friday in March.
