CITIZEN SCIENTIST SYMPOSIUM
Fossil Enthusiasts Welcome on May 25 and 26
The Calvert Marine Museum Fossil Club and the FOSSIL Project present the Citizen Scientist Symposium for Fossil Enthusiasts on Monday, May 25 and Tuesday, May 26 at the Calvert Marine Museum. The program begins at 9:00 a.m. in the Harms Gallery.
Citizen Science invites amateur scientists to be involved in important research. The Symposium offers an exciting opportunity for members of the fossil collecting community to learn about recording their finds, the local paleontology of Calvert Cliffs, how this compares to other locations across the globe, and how amateurs have greatly enhanced the collections of the Calvert Marine Museum Paleontology Department.
The public is invited to free lectures as part of the Symposium. On Monday, May 25, Rob Weems will present Calvert Cliffs Stratigraphy at 10:00 a.m. Following at 11:00, Dave Bohaska will present Field Notes: Best Practices. On Tuesday, May 26, Stephen Godfrey and John Nance will present Amateur Contributions to Paleontology at 10:00 a.m. At 11:00, Bruce McFadden will present Relating Calvert Cliffs to Panama.
