Fossil Enthusiasts Attending 


This was a true celebration of all that is fossil. We had members with trilobite jewelry (yes, that you, Robin!). We had T-shirts with fossil themes. And we even had trilobite tattoos! Check this out....

In case you are wondering, it ENROLLS!

And fossil enthusasts had their T-shirts out for all to see.

The T-short sported above was a give-away at last year's Kids public field trip "Search For Noids, Pods and Zoas!" (this is a plug. Come to the trip on June 11!


The group was entertained by the locals too. Above, some kids that are friends with the land owner and live nearby sold Isotelus and Flexicalymene trilobites at a bargain prices (above). His merchandise is in the box shown below.

Here's one of the beautiful multiple trilobites they were selling. These are called "love bugs". In actuality, there was such a concentration of trilobites in this region, that they were literally climing all over each other in Ordovician times. 

Kids also sported Black (Rat) Snakes. The one shown below was found on site. He had others in the car.
