Get up and close with fossils

Riverside secondary Earth Science 11 students Jaymee Lynn and Anna Doodson - with retired science teacher Erica Williams - hold fossils that will be part of a public display next week at the Port Coquitlam high school.

The Feb. 17 event hosted by the Port Moody Rock and Gem Club will feature the Burgess shale casts the club has on temporary loan from the Royal Ontario Museum as well as notogeneus, trilobite and ammonite fossils.

Guests will be able to study the preserved remains through microscopes and hear a presentation from Williams, who in the mid-1970s found dozens of snail and sea life fossils in Coquitlam - some dating back 16,000 years.

The exhibit runs from 6 to 8 p.m. next Tuesday at Riverside secondary (2215 Reeve St., PoCo).
