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: Stromatolite Identification Test
Location: In-person and via Zoom Link here and on the GMS Calendar here
Some dealers are selling specimens that they call stromatolite. Unfortunately they are not.
It's going to be a true or false test. If you attend, there will be a prize for the person or persons that get the answers right.
Please join us. Bring your stromatolites.
