The Bureau of Land Management is partnering with the National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service and other Federal and State agencies, museums and organizations to hold the first annual National Fossil Day on Wednesday. A number of events are scheduled to mark the day, which occurs this year during Earth Science Week.

“National Fossil Day is important because it helps promote public awareness about the importance of paleontological resources on the National System of Public Lands,” said Director Bob Abbey. “A better understanding of our Nation’s heritage will foster a commitment to stewardship of these fascinating resources and an appreciation of their scientific and educational value.”
