Fossil Collection

The APS fossil collection includes vertebrates, invertebrates, plants, and ichnofossils (tracks), primarily from Alberta, but also from other areas of North America. The collection has been in existence since the late 1980s.

The APS Fossil Collection is available to members for viewing, for comparative study in identification of your own fossils or for use in educational undertakings. From time to time it is also used for displays at the annual APS Symposium and at the Calgary Rock and Lapidary Club show.

The collection is properly indexed in a database managed by the APS Curator.
