By Joe Taylor/Special to The Hesperian-Beacon—
After being shut down for a year due to extreme hail and another tornado hit, the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum is open again. And to celebrate it, we are hosting a young English paleontologist who has come to study the large collection of fossils at the Museum.
Joe Hubbard, aka Indiana Joe, — because he has been all over the world collecting fossils –, will be giving a fascinating talk about fossils of Europe, England and Australia.
We think of these places as just castles, the Beatles and Aborigines, but Joe Hubbard will tell about the giant fossil wombat with a skull 3 feet long, the dinosaurs in England and the true history of the Aborigines who hunted the ten foot tall killer kangaroos with a killing boomerang they called “Kali” the name of the Indian devil.
He will describe the fossils one finds that are not talked about in mainstream science. He is a “dirty hands” field paleontologist willing to endure cold and heat, mud and sweat just to study fossils in person.
Joe Hubbard will speak at 7 p.m., Monday, February 17, 2020 at the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum. The Museum is located at 124 West Main Street, Crosbyton, Texas.
Come for coffee and donuts before and nacho cheese and chips afterwards. Everyone attending will get free fossils to take home with them.
There is no charge. Make a donation towards Indiana Joe’s next fossil trip to study the fossil trees in Tennessee that go through numerous layers if you like and get his report.
We are very fortunate to have this bright, and very knowledgeable young paleontologist come so far just to study Texas fossils and those in the Mt. Blanco collection from all over the country.
Please join us for a very enlightening evening in celebrating the re-opening of the museum.
