For 2018:

Earth Sciences Week is October 8-14, 2017

National Fossil Day is October 11, 2017

This very special day is not intended for us old fossils among the general population. Rather, it is a day to learn about, and preserve fossils found in nature.

In 2010, the U.S. National Park Service created the first National Fossil Day. According to their website, National Fossil Day is "a celebration organized by the National Park Service to promote public awareness and stewardship of fossils, as well as to foster a greater appreciation of their scientific and educational values."

There are many ways to participate in this very special day. Museums, schools, and other organizations can use the theme of fossils, to hold educational programs for the general public. Parks around the country with known fossil beds, can also hold educational programs, along with tours of fossil beds. As individuals, we can participate in these programs and tours.

We hope you shake your bones, and  have a happy and educational National Fossil Day

Origin of National Fossil Day:

National Fossil Day was created in 2010. It was created the U.S. National Park Service

This relatively new, yet important special day, is called a "National" day. We found no congressional or presidential proclamation making this day a true national day. However, it was created by an official Department of the United States, making the "national:" tag official.

Important Date: Some internet sites report this special day on varying dates in the month. We suspect these websites have not thoroughly researched this holiday and discovered that it is not a fixed date event.
