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: Fossilized Palm Wood

Palm wood is a beautiful colorful wood. This petrified wood is mostly found in the south. We know that's mostly where it grows. Palm trees like it warm. Let's talk about the evolution and biology.

Please bring your fossil Palm wood. Please join us.

Thank you,
