Every year in October, the Discovery Place organizes a Fossil Day event to coincide with National Fossil Day.  National Fossil Day was established in the US to promote the scientific and educational values of fossils. This nationwide celebration was first held on October 13, 2010, during Earth Science Week. The National Park Service and over 270 partners, including museums, institutions, organizations and other groups, joined together to celebrate fossils. Hundreds of activities are hosted across the United States annually allowing the public to better understand the world's fossil heritage. This year, Discovery Place's event is scheduled for Saturday, October 12th.  We will have lots of activities planned including crafts, fossil collections, fossil digs, and much more.
