Events for Educators

September

ID Day

Picked up a rock that looks suspiciously like a dinosaur fossil? Snapped a photo of a bright blue bird that you can’t identify? Your annual chance to get a world-renowned scientist’s take on it is coming up on September 12 at The Field Museum’s ID Day. You can bring in fossils, rocks, meteorites, seashells, feathers, and photographs of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, and insects—just nothing that’s alive or was recently, or the animals (or their fleas) could get loose in the Museum.
