Hays museum curator to give ‘Oceans of Kansas’ talk

July 17, 2012

There was a time when Kansas was completely covered in water.

A Hays museum curator will give a presentation on that period later this month at the Tonganoxie Community Historic Site.

Michael J. Everhart, adjunct curator of paleontology at the Sternberg Museum of Natural History, will offer the program “Oceans of Kansas” at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the historic site, 201 W. Washington St.

Everhart will take a look at Kansas long before it was a state and the many now-extinct species that inhabited the area once covered by a large body of water. He served as a senior science adviser on the 2007 National Geographic IMAX film “Sea Monsters.”

Admission to the presentation is free.
