2023 IGWS Calendar CAL2023

The 2023 annual Indiana Geological and Water Survey calendar, Giants Underfoot, is now available. The American mastodon (Mammut americanum) was one of the most abundant Ice Age mammals in what is now the Midwest. Mastodon fossils have been found in every county in Indiana. Only in 2022, though, did the mastodon become Indiana's state fossil–approximately 10,000 years after mastodons went extinct. The 21- by 33-inch calendar is printed in full color on heavy poster paper and is shipped rolled in a sturdy cardboard tube. On special discount for $0.99 through January 31!

To this day, Archaeopteryx is still the most ancient fossil bird ever found, and one of the most famous fossils in the world. It lived in Germany during the late Jurassic, 150 million years ago.
