CMM FOSSIL CLUB PRESENTS FREE PUBLIC LECTURES
Free paleo double-header

The CMM Fossil Club will present a free paleo double-header public lecture on Saturday, September 12 at 2:30 p.m. Join us for presentations by fossil club member, Debbie Palmer, and local student, Adam Lindholm, in the Harms Gallery.

Debbie Palmer will speak about her trip to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City to donate a unique fossil from her collection and provide supporting information on that specimen. Her presentation will also provide some behind-the-scenes of her experiences.

Adam Lindholm will present his 8th-grade science fair project on what the aerodynamic impact size of pterosaurs’ cranial crests had on their ability to fly. Pterosaurs were prehistoric reptiles that flew using a wing membrane that extended from an elongated fourth finger to their knee. Many sported large and extravagant head crests that might appear to have impeded their flight. His project examined the aerodynamic effects of these crests.

###

The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $9.00 for adults, $7.00 for seniors, military with valid I.D. and AAA members, and $4.00 for children ages 5 - 12; children under 5 and museum members are always admitted free.
