This month's Pebble Pup Meeting will cover fossil taphonomy. In other words, what happens to creatures when they die or become buried in sediments and become fossils. This will be like an "NCI fossils" talk, where we will look at some various fossils and determine how they existed and whether these represent actual life-like conditions or whether they have undergone environmental changes. Both fossils and minerals are always great to look at, but they got they way by some unique processes to achieve the beauty we see. Don't forget to bring a mineral or fossil for our show and tell.
See you there ~ Tom
REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED AFTER A BRIEF BUSINESS MEETING. CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE REFRESHMENT TABLE ALWAYS WELCOME! NO PEANUT PRODUCTS, PLEASE.
