National Fossil Day Celebration
The fourth Annual National Fossil Day Celebration, hosted by the UM Paleontology Center, was another success! Over 150 people from campus and the surrounding community visited the UMPC on October 16th. Attendees listened to a lecture by Dave Trexler of the Two Medicine Dinosaur Center; got their fossil treasures identified; toured the display cases, prep lab, and collections room; played in the Junior Paleontologist Room; and watched the HHMI's short-film, the Day the Mesozoic Died. Mark your calendars for October 15, 2014, will be the next year's celebration!
