See million-year-old fossils with geologists

The Ohio Statehouse is celebrating Earth Day by exploring the building stones of Capitol Square with geologists.

The building is made from quarried limestone, which is rich with fossils. Dale Gnidovic, curator of the Ohio State University's Orton Geological Museum and Mike Angle, assistant state geologist at the Ohio Department of Natural Resource's division of geological survey, will lead the tour. Visitors can expect to see fossils that are millions of years old.

The free event takes place at noon this Friday, April 19, at the Ohio Statehouse, located at Broad and High streets.
