Earth Science Week, an annual event occurring every October, promotes the understanding of geosciences and responsible stewardship of the Earth through celebratory events and opportunities across the country.
To kick off this nationally recognized week, a National Fossil Day program was once again offered in Fort Wayne by nonprofit Speaks for Trees and More. This event was hosted at Heidelberg Materials on Ardmore Road, on Saturday, October 7, 2023. It served more than 40 elementary students while highlighting how fossils allow us to understand the history of life on Earth and how our environment has changed.
In addition, students visited four unique stations that each hosted a hands-on activity that supported this area of science. In conclusion of the program, each participant was awarded a certificate and selected their very own unique piece of history as they chose an authentic take-home fossil from southern Indiana.
