Earth Science Week/National Fossil Day

Earth Science Week/National Fossil Day

October 10 – 13
Paleo Lab, 2nd Floor

Our paleontologists will be on hand from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, explaining this year's theme, Paleozoic fish, and their special significance for New Jersey. Visitors will see the actual fossils of these strange animals of 400,000,000 years ago and learn how we find and study their bony skeletons. Explore New Jersey's wonderful heritage of fossils, on display throughout the Natural History Hall, and feel free to ask our scientists any questions you may have about New Jersey natural history.
