After 65 million years of being extinct, even dinosaurs are finding a fall Door County vacation too good of an opportunity to pass up. Several fossils from Wausau-based Colossal Fossils will make the ferry ride to Washington Island for a day where the whole community can get up close to the bones of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals. Washington Island School science teacher Jessica Dennis says it is a great opportunity for students and community members who would otherwise have to spend hundreds of dollars to experience it elsewhere on their own.
A location still needs to be determined, but Washington Island residents and visitors will be able to check out the fossils during a public event on October 5th at 5:30 p.m.
