Experts theorize that most of Vermont was under water during prehistoric times. But Vermont has its own claim to "fossil fame": Traces of coral reef found in the Champlain Islands pre-date the dinosaurs by several million years.
"DinoTracks" is a creation of EEC!, the same folks who brought you Turtle Travels, Tree Houses, and Attack of the Bloodsuckers! The entire exhibit is in English, French, and Spanish, welcoming visitors from near and far. Be sure to join this hands-on - and feet-on - journey of discovery, unraveling the tales of the dinosaurs that roamed our own "backyard," millions of years ago.
This exhibit is produced by the Environmental Exhibit Collaborative (EEC!), a group of mid-sized children's and natural science museums, including ECHO, and is made possible by grants from Jane's Trust and the Cabot Family Charitable Trust, with added support from IBM.
ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center is located at the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain, on Vermont's Burlington Waterfront. ECHO features 70 live species, over 100 interactive experiences.
