Have you ever been wandering the shores of one of our great lakes, come upon a fossil and wondered what this creature was…or how it got to be here…or what kind of world existed when it was alive. If your curious about Michigan Fossils please join the Indian Mounds Rock and Mineral Club on March 19th when well-known fossil enthusiast “Paleo Joe” joins us for the presentation “Fossils of the Michigan Basin”. Paleo Joe will delve into a geological period called the Devonian, over 350 Million years ago, much of was what is now Michigan was covered by a warm shallow tropical sea. Joe will describe the numerous coral reefs, beaches and creatures who lived and died here during the that era. Joe will take a comprehensive look deep into the ancient Devonian Sea and explore the richness of life that covered Michigan at that time. Fossils found here include corals, brachiopods, crinoids, cephalopods, gastropods, trilobites, clams and placoderm fish.
