About Ancient Oregon: Where the Dinosaurs Didn’t Roam

Ancient Oregon: Where the Dinosaurs Didn’t Roam

If there is one thing on which people of all kinds agree, it's that dinosaurs are awesome. Unfortunately, Oregon doesn't have any! Even so, the Beaver State makes up for its lack of T. rex with a fascinating and extensive fossil record. Join us for a tour through our state's literally explosive prehistory, from its start in the Blue Mountains to the end of the Ice Age in your own backyard.

About Hotel Oregon History Pub

Hotel Oregon History Pub

These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
