The Tate Geological Museum’s Holiday Open House will be held this Saturday, Dec. 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The day will include door prizes, face painting, an ornament workshop, and the Shark Tooth Hunt, where participants can find and keep their own fossil shark teeth and shells. Treats, including cookies, punch, and cider will be available.

Meet the ever-popular Santasaurus and enjoy a photo opportunity with not only Santasaurus but also the museum’s Dee the mammoth.

According to Patti Finkle, director of museums, the gift shop has a wonderful selection of one-of-a-kind jewelry and lots of dinosaur and geology-related toys, books, and kits for the children. For the science buff, we have books and DVD’s relating to geology and paleontology topics. We also have a selection of Tate t-shirts, hoodies, and vests. Museum members will receive 20 percent off in the gift shop, “It will be a great time to stock up on stocking stuffers and other gifts for the holiday season,” said Finkle.

The Tate Geological Museum Holiday Open House is free and open to the public. The Tate Geological Museum is located on the Casper College campus.
