The Memorial Hall Museum will create "Impressions from a Lost World," an array of programs to engage regional, national, and tourist audiences in learning about the history of the 1835 dinosaur track discoveries along the Connecticut River Valley. The museum will prototype, pilot, and finalize maps, museum programs, and educational materials for activities such as the hands-on traveling Jurassic Roadshow presentations and self-guided tours of the museum. These programs will aid in the development and launching of a large-scale website for sustained in-depth learning beyond the programming opportunity. "Impressions of a Lost World" will help to enhance tourism, local community pride, and awareness of the region's dinosaur track discovery–including its history, importance, the contributions that everyday people made.
