The Tate Geological Museum is featuring a Trilobite hunt on May 3rd, from 10:30 am to 11:30am.

“In this edition of Saturday Club we will learn all about the most fascinating invertebrates of the ancient past – the trilobites,” said Russell Hawley, Tate Geological Museum education specialist. “We will split open specimens of Utah’s 500 million year old Wheeler shale in search of trilobites, and students can keep any trilobites that they find,” noted Hawley.

The Saturday Club usually meets on the first Saturday of each month. Two sessions are held; one for students aged 8 and older, and the other for children aged 5 to 7. The cost for each one-hour session is $5 per child, which covers the cost of supplies and can be paid at the door.

Saturday Club is encouraged and recommended to parents with kids who show an interest in nature and earth science.

The Saturday Club takes place at the Tate Geological Museum, located on the Casper College campus. For more information, call the museum at 307-268-2447.
