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.

Topic: Chordata
Location: GMS Building

I wish to thank Martha Brown for running the May meeting in my absence. There were many examples of Jurassic fossils brought to the meeting. This month we will discuss fossils of the phylum chordata. You will see that not all members of this phylum have backbones. Bring your specimens. Hope to see you there.

Kim Cochran,
Fossil Section Chair
