Museum to Host 10th Annual Fossil Road Show

Jackson- Pack up your fossils and hit the road! The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks' Museum of Natural Science invites you to bring your fossil discoveries and get expert opinions about their ages and identities from our team of scientists at the 10th Annual Fossil Road Show on Saturday, March 2 from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Explore the Museum's fossil collection, collector displays, and institutional exhibitor booths. Hands-on activities include a molding/casting exercise, "fossil dig", and a scavenger hunt. "Go through your 'rock boxes' and challenge our staff with your prehistoric oddities. Who knows what might turn up this year?" says Paleontology Curator George Phillips.

There is no fee, other than regular Museum admission, to attend the event and reservations are not required.
