If anyone in the family or the classroom is a fan of the new PBS show Dinosaur Train, then this is an event you won't want to miss!
Dinosaur Train is a relatively new great show from PBS. Oneonta World of Learning (OWL) has received a grant to partner with PBS Kids, WSKG, and Leatherstocking Railroad Historical Society to present a Dinosaur Train event.
The Dinosaur Train event will take place on Wednesday, April 13th, featuring a one hour train ride filled with games and activities presented by PBS Kids and OWL. There will also be a meet and greet with Buddy the dinosaur, the main character of the Dinosaur Train show.
There are two opportunities on April 13th to ride the Dinosaur Train. The first train departs at 10am and the other at 1pm, from the Milford, NY depot.
This will also be a fabulous field trip opportunity for children up through first or second grade. Teachers can prepare their students for the event with one or more of the great lesson plans available at: http://www.pbs.org/teachers/dinosaurtrain/.
Reserve your tickets directly through the railroad by calling 607-432-2429.

OWL would also like to thank our first new sponsor for the 2011-2012 sponsorship season! The Insurance Professinals of Chenango Valley (IPVC) have generously sponsored OWL for the entire year.
