Fossil Forest Tale Continues
Scott Elrick's interview with BBC radio 4 at the Creek Paum mine concerning the Fossil Forest Discovery was broadcast the last week of October. The program is available for listening: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/science/leadingedge_20081023.shtml
Elrick also presented an illustrated public lecture, Geologic Secrets of the Fossil Rain Forest, on November 6, 2008, at the Beckman Institute Auditorium on the University of Illinois' Urbana-Champaign campus. A capacity crowd attended the lecture and actively participated in the question-and-answer session that followed. Many stayed to observe fossil specimens after the event.
