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.
Events scheduled to take place at this meeting will include:
The Gerling-Reich Award
Dr. Shya Chitaley
Through the generosity of the late Dr. Shya Chitaley, the North Coast Fossil Club is proud to sponsor its annual Plant Fossil Competition.
All members are encouraged to participate by bringing their best plant fossils (collected in 2018) to the February, 2019 meeting. Members displaying plant fossil collections will be asked to designate a single plant fossil for the competition.
By a vote of the members present, a first and second place winner will be determined and will be presented the Gerling-Reich Award which is a monetary prize. Only one monetary prize per member will be awarded.
All plant fossils entered in this competition must have been collected during the year 2018 by the member submitting them. No purchased fossils are eligible for this competition.
Featured Speaker: Our speaker will be Randy Pelton who is a volunteer in the Cleveland Museum of Natural History Vertebrate Paleontology Department and a retired earth science teacher. His topic will be "Chasing the Late Cretaceous Dinosaurs of Montana & Alberta".
Collector's Corner: For this month's Collector's Corner you are invited to bring in "Anything Dinosaur Related". That might include bones, tracks, coprolites, etc. Perhaps our speaker will be able to shed some light on whatever dinosaur related material that you might bring in.
