School of Biological Sciences' Jenny McGuire invites everyone to become a fossil hunter and help discover how communities have changed through time. Experience what it's like to be a paleontologist, finding and identifying new specimens in 30,000-year-old samples brought back from Natural Trap Cave, Wyo.

The work is part of a project that examines how the community of species living around Natural Trap Cave has changed since the extinction of megafauna in North America. 

All are welcome. Bring your friends. 

Fossil Wednesdays will take place from Aug. 24 through Nov. 30, except Nov. 23.
