Ohio's Fossil Record
In celebration of Earth Science Week, October 11 to 17, 2020 and National Fossil Day, Wednesday, October 14, 2020, the Orton Geological Museum is pleased to present a Digital Exhibit of Ohio fossils.
This exhibition adds to our other Digital Exhibits designed in celebration of The Ohio State University's Sesquicentennial. Many of the specimens illustrated in Ohio's Fossil Record are part of the permanent collection of The Ohio State University. Some, such as the mounted skeleton of a giant ground sloth, were acquired by Edward Orton, the University's first President.
