Have you ever wondered about a fossil you've found? Then bring it with you to Identification Day. Scientists and experts from all over Central Texas are on hand to look at and identify natural objects (fossils, bones, rocks, etc.) and archaeological materials (arrowheads, points, scrapers, etc.).
Scientists from Texas Natural Science Center's Non-vertebrate Paleontology Lab and Vertebrate Paleontology Lab, and Texas Natural History Collections are present at ID Day, along with a variety of special guest experts from The University of Texas at Austin and the Austin area.
Identifications are for educational purposes only. Participating scientists and experts do not provide authentications or appraisals for monetary (market) value or for legal purposes.
For more information send an email to Pamela R. Owen or call her at 512-232-5511.
If you need any accommodation to participate in the event, please contact Pamela R. Owen at least five days before the event.
