What's old is new again! Join in celebration of the 8th annual National Fossil Day on Wednesday, October 11, 2017. National Fossil Day is organized by the National Park Service as part of AGI's Earth Science Week to promote public awareness and stewardship of fossils, with the goal of inspiring the next generation of paleontologists and fossil enthusiasts.
