Today is National Fossil Day! As we continue our celebration of Earth Science Week, Ohio fossils offer glimpses into the state’s natural history and the many environments that existed over the course of nearly 500 million years. Fossil-bearing rocks are found all across Ohio. And numerous fossil-collecting sites are open for collecting by the public.
And did you know that two fossils are also two official state symbols in the buckeye state? They are the Isotelus (State Invertebrate Fossil) and Dunkleosteus (State Fossil Fish).
