Virtual Fossil ID

Dig up your unidentified fossil specimens and join us at 4 pm on Friday May 1 for Virtual Fossil ID. Through the magic of Zoom, Penn Dixie experts will identify your fossils and provide some background information about your geological treasures. There is no charge for this program and all ages are welcome to participate. Register below before May 1 to be included in the virtual program.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Computer with webcam, speakers, & microphone/headset; tablet; or smartphone
  • Fossils to identify
  • Any information you can provide about where the fossils were found
  • A ruler or tape measure to show scale
  • Notepad or paper to label specimens

Be sure that your equipment is up and running and that your space is well lit so we can see the specimens. Capacity is limited. We will do our best to make sure that everyone gets a chance to participate but cannot guarantee that we can look at your entire collection. Please note that we cannot appraise fossils — this program is for educational purposes only.

Support for this program is provided by Erie County and the Town of Hamburg.
