Fossil Boot Camp for PCC Historical Geology Students
by Cindy Smith
Fremont Stones ‘n Bones introduced 16 Pueblo Community College students to fossils in Steve Wolfe’s Historical Geology class. Few had any prior experience with fossils or knowledge of Fremont County’s rich paleontology heritage.
Familiarity with local fossils helps the students understand and identify local sedimentary layers when on class field trips.
Each student received two containers with 8 large and 24 small fossils plus a loupe. Harold Taylor led the 3 hour presentation and students received a grab bag fossil at the end of the class.
