for People Interested in Fossils

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.

If you have any questions about Fossil Section, please contact Fossil Section chair Kim Cochran.

Date: Monday, October 10, 2022
Time: 7:30 pm
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.

Thank you,
Martha S. Brown
Fossil Section Chair
