We're excited to present our four main Lecture Series for 2023-24, outlined below.
Special Lecture Monday, Oct. 16: Treasures From the Bruce
Rescheduled from 2020 due to the Pandemic, this talk by geologist Stu Collier explores local paleontology and geology through a multi-year fossil dig near Wiarton. Stu will also comment on any fossils you bring to the live lecture!
