for Friends of Stonerose Fossils
 REPUBLIC, WA


As is typical of a non-profit institution, admissions and retail sales alone only make up a small percentage of Stonerose  Interpretive Center and Eocene Fossils 
budget.  We continue to solicit memberships and individual donations to make ends meet. 
 

      Stonerose bridges the gap between science and the public. The public enjoys the adventure of hunting for 50 million year old fossils, and gets to keep 3 of their finds.  If one of your finds appears to be scientifically significant, it is held for study.  
      In 2014,  2 new species of insects were identified and published; each was named after its finder!
      Scientific study of our uniquely well preserved fossils may provide eventual understanding of how climate change affects biologic processes.

It's not too late to make your important contribution before the end of December, for inclusion in your 2015 tax return!
Stonerose has a date to attend Dino Day at the Burke Museum in Seattle in early March, an annual tradition. Last year 800 children came to our booth for a hands on experience splitting shale and finding fossils!
Please share our campaign! Happy New Year!

A donor said, "Join me in keeping Stonerose going strong into the future! After all, what good is the past if it doesn't have a future? Best wishes!"
