Skulls and Bones
Have you ever discovered a bone buried in the soil or lying on the ground in the woods and wondered whose it was? Here is your chance to learn how to identify some of the common types of bones you might find as you explore the outdoor world. Cheri Collins will use Goodwin's skull and bone collection, as well as her own collection of specimens, to help you learn to look for the important clues scientists use for identification. If you have a mystery bone of your own, bring it along and we will identify that, too!
This free event is jointly sponsored by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA), Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) Division of Parks, and Friends of Goodwin Forest.
