    Hey @lara-greene, Ramsey, and @danielle-brennan! Can you say more about the matrix you used in your poster? It looks like there’s a lot of different fossils in it. Have you used the activity with students yet?

    Hi @jim-chandler, because the poster was too big, @richard-bex used a workaround. Click the link at the end of his post. It should automatically start a download of the poster for you. As a low resolution “teaser”, I took a screenshot from my computer for you to check out. Is there anything in particular you’re interested in on the poster?

    The matrix is Eocene gravel. We’ve used it in classroom presentations for various grade levels (preK through high school) and at the museum I work at, Pensacola MESS Hall, for the general public. People enjoy it, young and old. You can find shark teeth, ray, some fish dental plates, turtle and occasionally other things like crabs and horn corals.
    We’re going to have a fossil workshop at the MESS Hall with it on November 4. If you’re going to be in the Pensacola area please stop by and check it out.
