The Manasota Fossil Club was formed in 1997 to bring together those people in the Manatee and Sarasota County, Florida area who are interested in paleontology, local fossils, and artifacts. Meetings usually feature a guest or member speaker and slide shows and/or fossil displays. The club donates identifiable fossils to the Crowley Nature Preserve and other local groups with educational programs with sand box "fossil digs". Members also donate time to speak to local schools and clubs.
