The Baltimore–Washington Superconducting Maglev Project is a proposed project connecting the United States cities of Baltimore, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., with a 40 mi maglev train system between their respective central business districts.  The MAGLEV train project being proposed could have impacts on the paleo resources at the Beltsville Agricultural Research Station and Patuxent Wildlife Research Refuge. Sam Droege at USGS has asked the NHSM Fossil Club to conduct site visits to identify dinosaur tracks and other fossils in and around the proposed trackway.  The first site visit will be October 31 with subsequent ones to follow.

Natural History Society of Maryland’s Fossil Club is a group of novice and more experienced collectors will meet to exchange knowledge and help with fossil identification, discuss fossil locations, as well as other fossil related topics. Monthly meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month at the Natural History Society of Maryland.
Due to COVID, NHSM is opening up this club meeting to all. Non-members are encouraged to donate $5. If you are a fossil enthusiast, please consider joining. You must be a member of NHSM to join any of its clubs. NHSM membership is $25 for individuals, $35 for families, Fossil Club membership is an additional $5 for individuals and $10 for families. The Natural History Society of Maryland is a volunteer-led non-profit organization, so the fee you pay will go directly to support the programs, the nature collections, and the building that make this kind of nature education possible.
You must register in advance to receive the Zoom meeting information. If you have questions related to the Fossil Club, please email Adrien
Thank you for your support!
