20th Anniversary of the Hamburg Natural History Society
BY JOSHUA BERES, THE GROWWNY TEAM
The Hamburg Natural History Society, Inc. (HNHS) was formed in April 1993 to help raise funds to preserve and protect the Penn Dixie Paleontological and Outdoor Education Center in Hamburg, NY. Penn Dixie is a place for future generations to study, collect and learn about the 380 million year-old animals and plants that were in the oceans that once covered WNY.
The Hamburg Natural History Society is recognizing its 20th Anniversary on Saturday, July 27, 2013, from 9 AM – 4 PM at the Penn Dixie Site on 4050 North St. in Blasdell, NY 14219. This will be an opportunity for the public and members to view the continuing changes to the site, future development plans for an outdoor education center building, tours of the site including fossil collecting areas, trails, and the wetlands. Take some time to come and learn how the Penn Dixie Site has evolved over the years and become a historical gem in the Buffalo area. Thanks to the HNHS, this unique fossil site and key to our geologic past has been preserved and will continue to draw attention from across the country and all over the world. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy all that Penn Dixie has to offer on this special occasion.
The Society is rolling back admission rates to 20 years ago when they were $3/adult and $2/child for the day. Penn Dixie members will have a free admission.
