Have you ever looked at a fossil or bonebed and thought, “it is just a pile of bones”?
The Hudson-Meng Education and Research Center (HMERC) invites you learn about Nebraska’s fossils and bonebeds Friday at 7 p.m. as part of a summer series of educational talks.
The educational talk will take place at Fort Robinson State Park’s Solider Creek Campground’s picnic shelter, next to the playground. The evening’s presentation will be led by Robyn Cloughley, a second year Hudson-Meng ranger. Cloughley will discuss fossils and bonebed identification for a deeper understanding and appreciation of their importance to northwestern Nebraska.
This talk will is the first in the summer series hosted at two state parks by the HMERC. Talks will be at Fort Robinson on Fridays at 7 p.m. and at Chadron State Park on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.
Ryan Means, HMERC director, said that what he enjoys about the educational talks is “the opportunity for the community, visitors, and Hudson-Meng rangers to get together and share their appreciation of these amazing diverse landscapes, animals, natural resources, and the rich history of northwest Nebraska.”
