National Fossil Day Celebration

10/14/2017 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Come explore the exciting world of fossils with members of the Dallas Paleontological Society. Learn about ancient Texas, see casts of animals, and become a member of the “PIT” Crew (Paleontologists in Training). You can even bring in your own fossils and have them identified.

Be sure to come early! At 10 a.m., meet two fossil tortoises that were discovered by Jim Caddell in July of 1994 in the Northwest corner of Nebraska in a region known as the Nebraska Badlands.

Plus, be sure to visit the Dinosaurs Live! exhibit, which features 10 life-size animatronic dinosaurs.

This event is included in general admission and free for Heard Museum members.
