On Tuesday, April 29, from 4-6 p.m., the community is invited bring fossils, rocks, minerals, and artifacts to be identified and photographed by the museum’s team of experts. Light refreshments will be served. “We will have a paleontologist, two archaeologists and a geologist on hand to identify finds,” said Brett Woodward, collections manager for the museum. “With so many scientists available we will be able to better identify more types of specimens. Our team of scientists loves to see the public’s collections of fossils, artifacts, and rocks. It really helps us to better understand the region.” The museum cannot appraise fossils or artifacts. The museum is open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and is located 1.8 miles off Exit 13 on Interstate 26. For more information or special assistance for those with disabilities, call (866) 202-6223 or visit the museum at www.etsu.edu/naturalhistorymuseum.
