Fossil Footprints: All Ages
Museum staff will talk about fossils, how they are made, and show a few examples. Participants will also get to make their own fossil trackways using stamps!
Fossil Investigation: 4th Grade and Up
Museum staff will discuss fossils, how they form, and what they can tell us about ancient environments. Participants will also get to search for fossils in a geologic core, and determine how the environment has changed through time based on the fossils they find!
