  • Description:

    Bring in your treasures and discover ours! Bring in your own collected objects for identification by experts, and take a look at some of our treasures, too! Experts will join us from the fields of paleontology, anthropology, archaeology, botany, zoology, and geology. They will help you identify: Shells; rocks and minerals; fossils; arrowheads and other stone tools; shards of pottery; vertebrate bones; insects; skulls; seeds, leaves, twigs; and fish. Sorry, no appraisals will be given.

    We will also be celebrating National Fossil Day on October 6, offering the opportunity for aspiring paleontologists to earn their National Park Service Jr. Ranger Paleontologist badges. For more information, visit www.nature.nps.gov/geology/nationalfossilday
