In the winter month of February, the Dry Dredgers held an indoor field trip to Miami University's Karl E. Limper Geology Museum. Museum Director, Dr. Kendall L. Hauer, hosted us that Saturday, which is normally a day that the doors are closed. Dr. Hauer gave us the VIP tour, explaining the exhibits, answering questions and providing refreshments.
The Dry Dredgers extend their sincere thanks to Dr. Hauer for his hospitality and taking time from his Saturday to show us around.
There have been a lot of changes to the Limper Museum, since we were last here on a field trip in January 2000. The exhibits that were largely cases with fossils and labels are now elaborately illustrated and documented. The Limper Museum has always been a primary place to see our local fossils identified and displayed. All of that is still true. The local fossils are featured in a large section of the Museum. In addition to the local fossils, fossils from around the U.S. and the world are on display along with large cases exhibiting minerals and other geologic artifacts.
Photography was welcome, and so, as you might imagine, many of
our members were busy taking pictures for their records and to show to others.
Here are some pictures of the many beautiful exhibits
in the Limper Museum.
That's all we've got for this field trip. Join us in March 2009 for our next excursion.
