On Tuesday, August 27, 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. “Several scientists will be on hand to identify finds, such as a paleontologist, two archaeologists and a geologist,” said Brett Woodward, collections manager for the museum. “Because we have scientists with different interests and areas of expertise, we are able to better identify more types of specimens. Our entire team loves to see what funds the public brings to ‘Fossil & Artifact ID Night.’ It really helps us to better understand our region’s past.” 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.
