Nov 7, Sat., 1:00pm-3:00pm….Lake George Gem and Mineral Club…DRC is proud to offer a special exhibit of more than 60 species of sea creatures that lived in this area and Texas during the Pennsylvanian Age (between 318-295 million years ago). This was before the time of dinosaurs and our part of Colorado was covered by a shallow sea. Most of the critters that lived in our ocean back then were small and simple like snails, clams, sea urchins, worms, sponges and corals, but there were also sharks and relatives of the octopus and squid. Some have living descendants and others are completely extinct today. Paul Combs from the Lake George Gem and Mineral Club will be here to answer any questions you may have.
