Collection, which will be on display in Fremont. The Gordon “boys” gave a lecture, “Reflections on a Mammoth Discovery” (right), and manned an information table, providing visitors with the fascinating history of the Irvington site.
UCMP’s classic Fun With Fossils event was as popular as ever, with eager young paleontologists looking through microscopes searching for microfossils. Savvy fossil fans arrived early and picked up their tickets for a tour of the normally closed-to-the-public research collections. At the tee shirt table, the Museum sold off shirts with older designs (at bargain prices!) to make room for new designs, scheduled to debut at next year’s event.
It seems that every year, the crowds get bigger and bigger. A final word of advice: if you were one of those people who came too late to get your free ticket for a tour of the UCMP fossil collections, next year, make UCMP your first stop and pick up a ticket early!
