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.
