We’re continuing our monthly Sunday fossil parties at the Burke, and would love for you to be there! Please see below for the complete list of dates. During these events participants sort through microfossils, help piece together macrofossils, and take part in a number of other paleo activities. We’re excited to announce that we’ll be co-hosting these events with the Northwest Paleontological Association (NPA), which is a Seattle-based organization for professional and amateur paleontologists of all ages. You can read more about the NPA by visiting their website here.
New for this year: we will have an invited speaker for many (hopefully all) of the events! Stay tuned for a list of the presenters coming soon. These events are a great way to connect with members of the DIG and other fossil enthusiasts, learn more about paleontology, and get your hands dirty! Moreover, these events can help STEM teachers build their scientific knowledge through direct interaction with authentic data and scientists. Please RSPV to firstname.lastname@example.org, or send us an email if you have any questions.
