AMHERST, MA – Last weekend, some Wooster Geologists attended the Keck Symposium at Amherst College and were awed by their geology museum. The Beneski Museum of Natural History is housed in a modern building and covers three floors, displaying over 1,700 specimens. The museum hosts the Hitchcock Ichnology collection, the world’s largest collection of dinosaur footprints. Other highlights include the wall of mammals, an impressive mineral collection, and exquisite table tops of polished stone. Here are a few photos that might just make your jaw drop.
