The World of Micro Fossils

For October, we will have our fossil matrix workshop, "LEARNING ABOUT MICROS." The fossil record holds many secrets, but when you start to think small, those secrets really come alive. We will be looking through Aurora, NC matrix for micro shark teeth, ray teeth, fish teeth, and much much more. Come learn about the fascinating world of micro fossils. Remember 60% or more of the fossil record is less then 10 mm. You can bring hand held magnifying lens or lighted lens. Society will provide paper plates and ID sheets. While you search for those very small shark teeth, the great classic movie "Jaws" will be shown. "I think we need a bigger boat".
