Happy National Fossil Day!
Today is the first ever National Fossil Day, as a part of Earth Science Week. The National Park Service and American Geological Institute have partnered to host this great event.
The stated mission of the event is such: National Fossil Day is a celebration organized by the National Park Service to promote public awareness and stewardship of fossils, as well as to foster a greater appreciation of their scientific and educational values.
I think we can all appreciate the importance of this mission. Please, check out the website (link above) to learn more about the goals and events surrounding National Fossil Day.
