LOGAN — Utah State University’s Department of Geology invites inquiring minds of all ages to the 2018 USU Rock-n-Fossil Day Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the Geology Building on the USU Quad. Admission is free.

“We welcome the community to join us for a day of science learning,” Dave Liddell, geology professor and event coordinator, said in a statement. “We’re offering a variety of engaging activities.”

The day’s activities include tours of the USU Geology Museum, demonstrations of how rocks break and how streams flow, as well as opportunities to view sections of rock under microscopes. Guests are also invited to bring a rock, mineral or fossil for identification by USU geologists.

‘Fossil dig’ activities, along with dinosaur cookies, will be provided for young children.

The USU Geology Building is located at the northeast corner of the university quad. Free parking is available in the surface lot south of Old Main.

Guests can also ride Cache Valley Transit District buses on routes 1, 4 and 15 to USU’s Veterinary Science Building on 700 North, and walk a block and a half south to the Geology Building.
