The 2014 National Fossil Day celebration was another success! Over 125 people joined the UMPC for tours, a movie, and fossil/rock identifications. Seven attendees signed up for new Friends of the UMPC, helping to raise $240! Thank you for joining our event and supporting the UMPC!

Mark your calendars…next year's event will be OCTOBER 14, 2015.
