October's Monthly Program
The Academy of Natural Sciences, Thursday, October 25th, 7:30 PM

         Our October speaker will be Dr. Dave Broussard, a biology professor at Lycoming College who is studying Late Devonian, Catskill Formation vertebrates. His presentation is entitled, “Paleoecology of Late Devonian Catskill Formation Vertebrates in North-Central Pennsylvania: Recent Work Highlights Important Discoveries”. Dave will discuss recent work along the US Rt. 15 corridor in Lycoming & Tioga Counties where he and his colleagues have been investigating the taphonomic & geochronological variation of several newly-discovered fossil sites.

Meetings are generally held on the fourth Thursday of each month from September through June in the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (except for November and December when the meetings are held on the third Thursday of those months). There are no meetings during the months of July and August. All meetings begin at 7:30 pm. The 19th Street entrance must be used to access the museum. Meetings are free and open to the general public. Attendees are encouraged to bring recent finds, fossils of interest, and new acquisitions for "show and tell".
