I am very excited. Yesterday I picked up a private collection of Capitola fossils donated to us for K-12 outreach purposes. It has many of the common taxa that I would like to have represented in the K-5 fossil study kits. Once we add the shark teeth (Victor) and whale bone fragments (Sean) we should be close.
It also happens to be a truly spectacular day today and low tide is at abut 5:40 this afternoon. I have a meeting at the local SC Natural History Museum this afternoon, and then I am going to take a walk on Capitola. Sean–I’m going to look for the layer with the fossil crabs. The donation has 2, and I need 4 more for the study sets, unless you have some as well.
