National Fossil Day- October 11, 2023
National Fossil Day occurs on Wednesday of the 2nd full week of October as part of Earth Science Week. The National Park Service and the American Geoscience Institute invite paleontologists and park rangers to discuss fossils found on public lands at special events nation-wide on that day. Every year is different.
Remember it is illegal to take fossils from state and national parks as well as private land unless given permission.
Photographs are a good thing.
