Fossil Section Meets
Second Monday
Every Month

Fossils are a unique way to get a glimpse of the past. Life (and sometimes death) is immortalized in stone.

These enigmatic rocks are formed many different ways and there is so much to learn from them. Please join us at the fossil section to learn more.

Fossil Section Message


Date: Monday, September 17, 2018 (Note: Date moved because of holiday)
Time: 7:30 pm
Topic: Fossil Motifs
Location: GMS Building

Please note, due to Labor Day, the General Meeting will be on the second Monday and the Fossil Section will be on the third Monday.

Last month, Martha Brown gave a very interesting presentation on plant fossils of Alabama. Most of us think that they occur only in the coal mining areas. We found that there are sites all around the state.

We all have decorative pieces around the house. Some of those have fossil motifs. At this meeting, we will see that if you look closely, you will find these motifs all around. Bring your examples.

Kim Cochran,
Fossil Section Chair
