FREE; Online Event
All ages encouraged to participate
Celebrate the 12th anniversary of National Fossil Day (Oct. 13) with the Burke’s Fossil Costume Contest! Channel your inner T. rex, transform into a beautiful ancient flower, become a mysterious sea creature—there are millions of years and millions of organisms to inspire you! Show off your best plant or animal fossil fashion by tagging @burkemuseum and #BurkeFossilFashion on social media for your chance to win fun Burke prizes.
Also enjoy paleontology-themed activities throughout the month of October as part of National Fossil Month! Follow a fossil’s journey throughout the museum with a special Husky Scavenger Hunt, play with magnetic walls depicting paleontology sites, and do at-home dino crafts available at burkemuseum.org/burkefromhome.
