National Fossil Day with the Missouri State Museum and the Ed Clark Museum of Missouri Geology

The eighth annual National Fossil Day is dedicated to promoting the understanding and appreciation of fossils. AGI is sponsoring an Art Contest this year! National Fossil Day is a great time to visit the Missouri State Museum, located on the first floor of the Capitol where you will see fossils embedded in the building’s limestone walls, floors and stairs. Also, on National Fossil Day, visitors to the Ed Clark Museum of Missouri Geology, 111 Fairgrounds Road,  in Rolla, Mo., will receive a small Crinoid fossil (official state fossil). See this article about some of the fossils in limestone of the Capitol and this map showing their locationshttp://dnr.mo.gov/pubs/pub2488.pdf
