Join environmental educator Lisa Mechaley at 10 a.m. Aug. 17, at the Outdoor Discovery Center on Muser Drive (across from 174 Angola Road) in Cornwall to learn about Fascinating Fossils. Budding paleontologists will view a collection of fossils, learn about their formation, find out what scientists learn from them, and learn how to collect them.
“Many of the fossils that are found in New York are marine animals that once lived in an ancient ocean that existed here 400 million years ago,” said Mechaley.
Participants will create their own fossil replicas to take home. The program is geared for adults with or without children, and children ages 5 and up. Admission is $7/adult, $5/child (members $5/adult, $3/child). Visit hhnaturemuseum.org or call 845-534-5506 x204.
