Guest Speaker Bill Halligan – Sunday September 24, 2017

Bill Halligan will share his experience of exploring fossilized methane seeps. These large mounds, in the area long ago covered by an inland sea, once offered a rich environment for life. Like the mounds at Tepee Buttes south of Colorado Springs, these land forms were not understood until the recent discovery of active seep sites on the ocean floor.

Bill is an NPA member and has studied these sites in the field. He has coordinated with other researchers who are investigating the fossils associated with ancient seeps, including joint field work this summer. The fossils he has expertly prepared are both fascinating and beautiful.

Bring a fossil to share at show-and-tell. Guests are always welcome to attend.

See you there!
