Identification Day

Sunday, January 26, 2014, 1-4:45 p.m.

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.).

Identification Day

Scientists from Texas Memorial Museum'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.
