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.

Topic: Mesozoic Birds and their Descendants
Location: GMS Building
February's meeting will be a discussion of the origins of Mesozoic birds and their descendants. As everyone now knows, birds are descendants of dinosaurs.
We probably will not have a virtual meeting as well. Anti-COVID-19 protocols will be in effect.
Please come and join us. It will be Valentine's Day. If you can't come, we will catch you later.
