Do you have a mystery fossil? Bring it for expert identification by Dr. Elizabeth Rhenberg from the WV Geological and Economic Survey! Don’t have a fossil? A fossil display by members of the West Virginia Fossil Club will showcase some of their specimens and answer questions about collecting fossils, and Taylor McCoy from Pittsburgh will display a collection of replica “Teeth and Claws”. Family friendly activities relating to fossils include making a fossil cast, viewing a tiny fossil insect through a microscope, and a museum hunt with fossil clues. New this year: we will be joined by folks from the SMART-Center in Wheeling with a display of “Life in the West Virginia Coal Swamp” and a fossil identification challenge.
Lecture by E. Ray Garton of Prehistoric Planet at 3:00 pm: “Fossils, and Where to Find Them in West Virginia”.
