National Fossil Day Celebration

Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary map
Kids and parents will get a chance to get a hands-on experience with fossil casts and more! Fossils will be available for participating children, while supplies last. All participants will receive a free copy of Fossil Collector's Guidebook to the North
Sulphur River (a $30 value) while supplies last!
At 1:30 p.m., please join us for the grand
opening of our newest exhibit, the Duck Creek, Garland Mosasaur Exhibit. The
bones of this large marine reptile that lived in the Earth's oceans when
dinosaurs walked the land will be debuted. Join us in Laughlin Hall to learn
about this 85 million-year-old mosasaur and how a team of devoted volunteers
took it from the rock in Garland to the museum floor.
This event is free with paid general admission and open to the public. Heard Museum Members get in free.
