Several striding trails of dinosaur tracks in concrete are ready for viewing at Brunswick Lake, located behind the Giant Eagle on Rt 303, just west of I71. The impressions represent at least ten species of dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures, most formed from molds of actual footprints made by Glen Kuban during his track work in several states. The walkway starts with the oldest tracks (Triassic), proceeds through the Jurassic and Cretaceous, and ends with Moa tracks from New Zealand, so as you travel up the walkway, you are essentially walking through time. The project is a joint venture of Glen, the Brunswick Artworks, All Concrete Services, and the City of Brunswick. NCFC members Carl Fechko and Beth Krumhanzl helped with the installation, and two decorative benches with paleo-art tiles were created by local school children. A tentative date of July 4th has been set for a "ribbon-cutting," by which time an interpretive sign should be installed. Hopefully the city will also install a parking area (for now you can park along the road near the walkway). For track photos and illustrations of the track-makers, please visit: http://paleo.cc/brunswick/Brunswick-tracks.htm
A very special family event for NCFC members and their guests
