A Special GMS Group
for People Interested in Fossils
Fossil Section Meets
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.
If you have any questions about Fossil Section, please contact Fossil Section chair Kim Cochran.

Topic: The Proboscidea Order

We will discuss the many lives of this order. There are a lot of teeth out there. Kim and Jane will bring their teeth to be inspected, I hope. It's the smallest part of an Elephant, Mammoth, Mastodon, or Gomphotherium we can collect.
Thank you to Jane and Bob Stone, also to Tom Faller for the program and zooming the Fossil Section meeting. They were awesome.
Please come, bring your fossils and join us.
