Many people find caves to be exciting destinations for exploration and recreation, but did you know that they can be excellent places to find fossils? In fact, many “Ice Age” fossil sites are from caves! Join Dr. Melissa Pardi, Paleontologist and Illinois State Museum's Curator of Geology, as she explores our paleontology collections from caves in the Midwest. 

Advanced registration is required at http://bit.ly/TFVNov21. The event will be recorded and shared to the Illinois State Museum Youtube Page. For more information please contact events@illinoisstatemuseum.org or (217) 782-6044.

"Tales from the Vault" is a collaborative program hosted by the Illinois State Museum, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, and Lincoln’s Home National Historic Site that allows the public to discover some of the treasures from these institutions' collections.

Certified Professional Development Units (CPDU) hours for Illinois Educators will be offered for this program. For additional information and questions, please contact lorna.shuman@illinois.gov.
