Fossil Club Meetings
Meetings are scheduled on a quarterly basis. All meetings are open to the public - you do not have to be a current CMMFC member to attend a meeting.
Various related fossil topics, club issues, etc. are discussed at the meetings, as well as updates from the Paleo Staff of the Calvert Marine Museum on recent finds and new additions to the museum's permanent collection. Whenever possible, these new items will be shared during the meeting. Whenever possible, meetings are followed by a free public lecture by a distinguished guest.

Our guest speaker is Dr. Dale Greenwalt, a Resident Research Associate in the Department of Paleobiology at the Smithsonian. He has been affiliated with that department since 2007. Dr. Greenwalt’s work centers on the description of the amazing fossil insect fauna of the Coal Creek Member of the Middle Eocene Kishenehn Formation in northwestern Montana. His presentation is entitled: The Purple Fossil. The meeting and lecture will be held in person in the museum's Harms Gallery and also virtually via Zoom (link to come).
