A free fossil tour of the Ohio Statehouse is being offered as part of Earth Science Week.
The Statehouse is constructed of a Middle Devonian-age rock called Columbus Limestone, which formed the sandy bottom of a tropical ocean that covered the state 400 million years ago. Fossils of the ocean's abundant marine life can be seen throughout the Capitol Square complex that centers on the Statehouse.
The one-hour tour departs from the Statehouse Map Room at noon. To reserve a free spot, call 728-2130 or email email@example.com.
