Bring your rocks, fossils, dry bones to Field Museum’s ID Day


Picked up a rock that looks suspiciously like a dinosaur fossil? Snapped a photo of a bright blue bird that you can’t identify? Your annual chance to get a world-renowned scientist’s take on it is coming up on September 17 at The Field Museum’s ID Day in Chicago. You can bring in clean, dry bones, fossils, rocks, meteorites, seashells, feathers, and photographs of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, and insects—just nothing that’s alive or was recently, or the animals (or their fleas) could get loose in the Museum. This event marks the Museum’s third annual ID Day. Last year, over a dozen Field Museum scientists specializing in zoology, paleontology, geology, and more were available to identify specimens and answer questions. This year, to meet the popular demand of the event, even more scientists will be on hand.
