Geological Society of Minnesota 'Fossils' Event

Sixty-four people attended the Geological Society of Minnesota's Paleo (fossils) Lab hosted by Jeff Thole and the Macalester College Geology Department.  After a short talk about identifying common fossils, participants had the chance to try their hand at identifying common fossil or observe good examples of the major fossil groups provided by the department and Roger Benepe's personal collection.  Many thanks to Roger for sharing his spectacular collection.  Thanks as well, to current and former Macalester students Heidi Anderson, Ben Faulkner, Carolyn Prescott, Jessie Shields, Mitch Awalt ('13) and Megan Whitney ('13) for providing guidance and answering many questions.
