The Harrison County Parks and Recreation Complex is hosting the fifth Walking with Dinosaurs exhibit.

The exhibit is funded by the Harrison County commission and is free to the public on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The paleontologist for the exhibit, Ray Garton, said the ‘Walking with Dinosaurs’ is much like a museum exhibit, having several interactive stations for kids to learn about dinosaurs and other fossils around West Virginia.

“For the learning stations they probably do six different ones, including one upstairs it’s actually a fossil dig where kids get to dig in the sand and find real fossils and you get to keep them and take them home,” Garton said. 

This is the first year the exhibit is allowing kids to take home real fossils that were found in West Virginia.

The ‘Walking with Dinosaurs’ exhibit will be open for visitors until the beginning of April.

The exhibit is open from 4-8 p.m. on Friday and from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
