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.

Speaker: Martha Brown
Topic: Fossils of the Mesozoic Era
Location: GMS Building
Last month, we discussed the fossils of Antarctica. We seldom see examples. We have little or no access to collect. There are few dealers who offer these specimens. There are, however, fossil exposures which are not covered with ice.
This month, Martha Brown will give a presentation on Fossils of the Mesozoic Era. These fossils are abundant and easily obtained. Please bring your specimens.
