"Finding Fossils in Point Rock Park"

Saturday, October 14 from 2-4 pm

This program will feature paleontologist Dr. Robin Whatley, Associate Professor in the Science and Mathematics Department at Chicago’s Columbia College.

Residents who have fossils and interesting geological specimens in their possession are encouraged to bring them to the program for a “show and tell”

Following the introductory program, Dr. Whatley will then lead an informal fossil hunt and walk in Point Rock Park to look at the fossil record of ancient animals and environments that can be seen in the park’s limestone rock faces.
