Red Panda Days:
Tuesday, September 6th – Sunday, September 25th
Want to be a Red Panda Ranger? Join us to learn more about the red panda’s significance at the Gray Fossil Site, make a red panda mask, zoom in on microscopic slides of what a red panda might eat, paint a 3-D footprint, and examine a red panda skull replica!
Red Panda Fossils found at the Gray Fossil Site are one of our greatest treasures! Join us on Thursday, September 15th, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm, as we help the Red Panda Network celebrate International Red Panda Day. The festivities will include all of the red panda activities and a scavenger hunt. At 6:00 pm, ETSU paleontologists, Stephen Wallace, will give a lecture on recent fossil Red Panda research.
Activities will be on-going throughout each day and are included free with admission to the Museum. The lecture will be September 15th only.
