The Tate Geological Museum’s annual Holiday Open House will be held on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

During the free event, visitors will be able to meet Santasaurus, make an origami dinosaur ornament, and have their mystery fossils identified through the Fossil Road Show.

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 and unique gifts for the holiday season. 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.

A new event this year will feature author Casey Rislov who will read aloud holiday and dinosaur-themed books at 10:30 and again at 11:30 a.m. Other activities will include a make-and-take fossil cast and face painting. Cookies, punch, and cider will be served, and door prizes will be given throughout the event.

The Tate Geological Museum is located on the Casper College campus.
