Identification Day

Is there a mysterious fossil that you found while backpacking, or a picture of the bizarre bird in your backyard? Bring in your fossils, seashells, rocks, meteorites, feathers, leaves, or photographs of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, flowers, and insects to the Museum and have world-renowned scientists identify them! Stop by, with or without mystery objects, to see (and touch) the scientific specimens out on display.
