The Art Gallery of Alberta is encouraging people to find fossils inside and outside of galleries and then share their discoveries. After you’ve taken a photo of a fossil, you can have your geotagged photos added to a special #FindAFossilAB map! Just tweet it with the hashtag #FindAFossilAB or join the #FindAFossilAB Flickr group. Click here to view specific geotagging instructions.
To start your fossil quest, visit the exhibition Jason de Haan: Grey to Pink through November 13 to easily spot some fossils. If you’re feeling adventurous, go on your own fossil hunt in the great outdoors!
Click here to view the map and see the pictures that have already been geotagged. Even if you don’t participate, you can use the map to locate places where you can view fossils. Exploring the dinosaur trails doesn’t have to mean a week-long vacation – it can be a easy as spending a couple hours finding fossils on a great weekend!
