We celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the third Monday of each January. Dr. King was born on January 15, 1929.

Volunteers around the country work to improve their communities and the world.
The largest dinosaur fossils ever found belonged to sauropods. The sauropod dinosaurs were plant-eaters with long necks and tails. A sauropod could weigh as much as 110 tons. Argentinosaurus huinculensis and Puertasaurus reuili were two titanosaurs in the sauropod family. Fossils of both of these dinosaurs were found in Argentina.
