BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Geological Survey is hosting a National Fossil Day event Wednesday at the North Dakota Heritage Center in Bismarck.

The agency says members of the public may bring in possible fossils to be identified by paleontologists and geologists. Children also have the opportunity to make a plaster cast of a fossil to take home.

Paleontologist Becky Barnes says fossils help people to understand the history of life, past climates and ancient landscapes.

She says a fossil is a “window to the past.”
