Dig for dinosaur bones today!

Duluth Children’s Museum Celebrates National Fossil Day

Dig for dinosaur bones, see how a field jacket is made, and learn about molding, casting and fossil preparation alongside of a real paleontologist!  On Wednesday, October 13th from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the Duluth Depot Great Hall the Duluth Children’s Museum will be celebrating National Fossil Day, an event all about fossils and their importance.  This family event is FREE and open to the public!

National Fossil Day was created by the National Park Service to promote public awareness and stewardship of fossils, as well as to foster a greater appreciation of their scientific and educational value.  This year will be the first annual National Fossil Day and it is expected to be a great success with 32 states participating across the country.

Employees from the University of Minnesota Duluth and the Sudan Underground Mine State Park will also be at the event to discuss the geology and Paleontology of Minnesota.
