The APEGA Rock & Fossil Clinic

The APEGA Rock & Fossil Clinic serves as an introduction to the wonders of geoscience and what a career in geoscience could look like. This event connects the public with professional geoscientists and geoscience students, and incorporates hands-on activities. Held annually on a Saturday in October, this fun, family-friendly event is free to attend!
