Field Trip Incentive Program: Any member who comes up with a new collecting site and leads a trip there will be rewarded with a free North Coast Fossil Club membership for one year.
Featured Speakers: Just like last month, as an added bonus, we will have 2 speakers for this meeting. Our first speaker will be Ireland Lahodny who is a sophomore at Normandy High School. The topic for her 20 minute presentation will be "The Mesozoic Pompeii". The Mesozoic Pompeii is the result of a series of past volcanic eruptions that occurred in what is now present-day China. The eruptions and the aftermath of the destruction produced fossils that were preserved exceptionally well. Ireland is a Discovery Ambassador at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. She is looking forward to volunteering in the Paleontology Department. A few months ago, Ireland spoke about this same topic at a meeting of the Cleveland Geological Society.
Our second and main speaker will be Nathan Smith who is a volunteer in the Vertebrate Paleontology Department at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. The title of his talk will be "The Mesozoic Extinction".
Collector's Corner: For this month's Collector's Corner you are invited to bring in your Mesozoic/Cretaceous Fossils for showing others and sharing information.
