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.

The November meeting will be a discussion of the Ediacaran Period. We will show and discuss the fossils from this period.

We will not have a meeting in December. Here is hoping we can enjoy family during the holidays.

Thank you to Cam for his excellent program.

We will try to have a live meeting and zoom in November.
