May Meeting Rescheduled: Sunday, May 21, 2017

We have moved the May NPA meeting up one week to accommodate members’ Memorial Day weekend plans.

Hands-On Activity: Sunday, May 7, 2017

We will be piecing together fossil parts from either a turtle or a Triceratops frill–it will be like working on a big communal puzzle. Get to know other NPA Members in this informal setting. Bring finger food snacks to share.

Non-members, this is a members-only event; however, you may RSVP using the Contact Us form and become an NPA member at the event.
