ETSU needs volunteers to find fossils this fall

The museum said experience is not required, but volunteers have to be 18 or older to participate.

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. — The East Tennessee State University Gray Fossil Site & Museum is looking for volunteers to help them find fossils this fall.

The museum is currently accepting volunteer applications for "wet-screening" or sifting through ancient pond sediment to separate out tiny fossils, according to its website.

Volunteers will work in well-ventilated outdoor areas, with plenty of space for maintaining a safe social distance from others, according to the museum. They should also be prepared to do minor physical labor and to spend at least three consecutive hours volunteering.

The museum said experience is not required, but volunteers have to be 18 or older to participate.

To become a volunteer, download a volunteer application from the museum's website or pick one up at the museum (1212 Suncrest Dr, Gray, TN 37615). 

For more information, contact Shawn Haugrud at haugrud@etsu.edu or visit the museum's website.
