Paleontology Open House

IU Paleontology Collection Open House

Held on April 30, 2016, the open house to celebrate the re-opening of the Indiana University Paleontology Collection was very well attended by both current and former IU students and faculty and by the general public.

The Collection is a research-focused repository for fossil specimens from Indiana and around the world operated by the Department of Geological Sciences, and is now housed on the 5th floor of the Geology building.

As part of the celebration, the Gary Lane Memorial Fund to support the collection was announced. If you want to make a donation to the fund, please click on the "Give Now" button (below) and type N. Gary Lane Paleontology Collection Fund into the search area.
