Museum to host fossil field trip for adults

NORMAN — Rock and fossil hounds will have an opportunity to collect their own fossils during an adult invertebrate fossil field trip offered Sept. 20-21 by the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History.

The program will introduce participants to some of the common invertebrate fossils in Oklahoma.

The program will begin 7 p.m. Sept. 20 with an informative presentation at the museum led by invertebrate paleontology curator Steve Westrop.

Participants will explore life in Oklahoma’s ancient oceans with a close-up look at some of the museum’s invertebrate specimens.

At 9 a.m. Sept. 21, the group will travel to a site where they will discover and collect marine fossils that are more than 400 million years old. Participants may keep the fossils they find and will return to the museum in the afternoon. Transportation is provided.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunch and snacks.

The cost is $60 for members and $70 for non-members. Advance registration is required and space is limited. To enroll, call 325-1008.

The Sam Noble Museum is on the University of Oklahoma Norman campus at Timberdell Road and Chautauqua Avenue.

Discounts are available for military personnel and their immediate families.
