BROWNSVILLE — February is Fossil Fun Month at the Living Rock Studios, 911 W. Bishop Way, Brownsville.

Guy DiTorrice, the "Oregon Fossil Guy," will host two hands-on presentations: 6 p.m. Feb. 1 for adults and 1 p.m. Feb. 15 for young persons.

Programs will feature recently-excavated fossils from the Willamette Valley, eastern Oregon and the Oregon coast.

The highlight of the program is the unveiling of a fossilized Woolly Mammoth juvenile tooth plate found by a farming family near Albany.

DiTorrice has repaired and stabilized the fossil for eventual museum display. Printed literature and sample fossils are provided to those in attendance.
