Join us as we dig into... fossils!
What are they? How do they form? How old are they? Where can you find them? There will be a brief discussion of the geologic time and a description of the warm shallow Ordovician sea that covered this area hundreds of millions of years ago. Instruction will highlight the world class fossil beds found in the Fort Ancient and greater Cincinnati area. There will be opportunities to view, touch, and describe the fossils that are typically found in the area utilizing: magnifying glass, hand lens, microscope, posters and reference books.
