Fossil show at the Calusa Nature Center

The Fossil Club of Lee County is presenting a fossil show at the Calusa Nature Center on Dec. 6th, 2008. Hours are 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for children.

The show features door prizes, raffles, silent auctions, games and a kid’s dig (keep what you find). The kid’s dig will be conducted by the Fort Myers Imaginarium.

The club has several exhibits of fossils found in Florida including giant armadillo, three -toed horse, glyptodont, tapir, rhino, camel, bison, mammoth and mastodon specimens.

Several well-known Florida dealers will be offering a wide array of fossil shark teeth, vertebrate specimens, minerals, gemstones, bottles, trade beads, books, fossil shells and unique fossil design jewelry.

An informative presentation on Florida’s Fossils starts at 10 a.m. A program on fossilized shark teeth starts at 2 p.m. and includes a display of huge fossil teeth from the now extinct megalodon shark. The megalodon was exceptionally large and could reach lengths of over 50 feet.

The Fossil Club of Lee County is a not-for-profit organization with over 100 members from the local area. Each year the club provides scholarship money for students pursuing paleontology or similar advanced degrees.

Additional information and directions to the show are available at the Club’s web site http://www.fcolc.com/ or call 239-834-0694.
