Don Johnson, "The Fossil Guy," returns in November with educational paleontology programs for children at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday afternoons at the University of Iowa Museum of Natural History.
All "Fossil Guy" programs include 30-minute talks with audience participation followed by 30-minutes of hands-on interaction with Don’s extensive fossil and replica collection.
Presentations are geared toward elementary-age children and their families. Don is an amateur paleontologist from Fairfax, IA with a special interest in fossil vertebrates. His collection of fossils and fossil replicas is one of the largest in Iowa, and he has experience collecting fossils in Iowa and other states out West.
