Question on fossils? Florida Museum of Natural History staff can answer

By on February 10th, 2012

This Sunday the Florida Museum of Natural History is hosting a special event for the community. The event, “Ask a Paleontologist” is held from 1:30 to 3:30 pm. The museum vertebrate paleontology collections manager Richard Hulbert says people of all ages are welcome to bring in any mystery fossils for experts to explain.

Hulbert also says, that the community does not need to know anything about fossils but, it would be helpful to know where it was found. This event will be held several times over the next few weekends. It is an opportunity for the community to learn more about the land before their time. The musuem is located on the University of Florida campus off Southwest 34th street.
