All Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C., including the National Zoo, and in New York City are temporarily closed to support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. We are not announcing a re-opening date at this time and will provide updates on a week-to-week basis.
The Zoom webinar with Paleontologists Karma Nanglu and Laura Soul aired May 8, 2020, as part of the Fossil Friday series. Watch a recording in the player above.
Join Karma and Laura to learn one of the most important skills for paleontologists: sketching and making observations of fossils. Grab paper and a pencil to follow along with them as they guide you through the important features to look for, how to sketch them, how to label them, and how to work out what it all means! You don't have to be a great artist (as Laura will demonstrate!) to be great at this important skill.
