FOSSIL IDENTIFICATION 101

 

 Guest Presentor Dr. Ben Datillo, of the IPFW Geosciences Dept, will  give some quick pointers on identifying fossils, especially Richmond and Indiana invertebrates.  He will try to show the difference between some foddil types that are easily confused.  If you have some which have puzzled you, bring them for him to check out.

We are located in Fort Wayne Indiana.  We are  a non-profit, family-oriented club.  We collect minerals, fossils, rocks and Indian artifacts.  We have members who do lapidary, gold and silversmithing, faceting, cabochons and wirewrapping.   We meet at 7-9 pm on the 4th Wednesday of the month (except December on the 3rd Wednesday and no meeting in July).

 
Our main fund-raiser is our annual October Rock and Mineral Show  & Sale at the Allen County Fairgrounds.  Our 2015 show (54th) is Oct. 16, 17, & 18.   Budget permitting, we may offer scholarships each year to students majoring in Geology.
