Workshop tour

We had a very fun home school group tour last Friday. There were “kids” of all ages that seemed to really enjoy the tour. I think some of the adults had as good a time as the kids. We learned all about fossils and how we find them, the tools and processes we use to clean and prepare fossils and checked out all the things still in field jackets waiting to be brought to the bench and different pretty things in the show room.

Here are some photos from the day –
