Have a fossil find or riveting rock you want to show off and learn more about? You're in luck.

On Wednesday, the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology Museum of Geology will host its fifth annual Rock and Fossil ID Day. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be from noon to 4 p.m. on the third floor of the O’Harra Building on the Mines campus.

Paleontology staff and trained students from the Society of Economic Geologists, Tech Geological Association and Paleo Club will study and identify specimens and be available to answer questions. According to museum staff, quartz is the most common rock brought in for evaluation.
