April 3, 2019

Several activities for all ages are planned during the Fossil Fish Festival Saturday, April 13, at the University of Wyoming Geological Museum.

Activities, free and open to the public, are from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

Activities include preparing fossil fish, virtual-reality tours, a scavenger hunt and fish lab tours every half hour. UW graduate student Jimena Golcher will discuss current research on the evolution of fish. She will lead two tours of the Wagner Lab for participants to look at tanks with live fish.

“Join us for some kid-friendly educational and interactive activities highlighting Wyoming’s fossil fish,” says Laura Vietti, UW Geological Museum and collections manager.

The UW Geological Museum sponsors the event.
