Paleontologist Rebecca Hunt-Foster Lecturing on Ornithomimids


The Utah Field House of Natural History is holding a lecture that will appeal to those who love dinosaurs. The lecture will focus on how Ornithomimids were a vital component of the dinosaur community in Utah. These dinosaurs had some very unique features, like toothless beaks and long arms, that make them difficult to classify. If anyone is qualified to give us the inside scoop on these dinosaurs it is paleontologist Rebecca Hunt-Foster. She is the current paleontologist for the National Park Service at Dinosaur National Park. Before her current job she was the district paleontologist for the Bureau of Land Management. She has been part of the dinosaur community in western Colorado and eastern Utah since 2007. The lecture will be on Thursday, June 20th, starting at 7pm at the Utah Field House of Natural History.

Kristin never planned to work in news radio but has thoroughly enjoyed being part of the news team at KVEL. Her love of literature and writing developed in high school which led her to study English Literature and Technical Writing at BYU. She received her BA in English from BYU in 2005 and studied at UVU in Orem for 2 semesters to become a Certified Technical Writer in 2006. Two months after completion she began her dream job of being a stay-at-home mom.  As mother of 2 energetic kids, she began writing from home for the KVEL news team in 2011 and considers it the perfect fit as a full time mom and part time writer.
