Building Partnerships With Other Youth Organizations
Partnering with other youth organizations such as 4-H, Scouts, Homeschool Associations, Processional Organizations, Local Museums, Nature Preserves, Summer Camps, and High School Geology Clubs can be a great way for clubs to build a juniors program. These organizations can be a great source of kids and adult leaders while helping your society increase visibility and serve local communities.

About the image on this page
This Diplomystus dentatus fossil is from the Eocene Green River Formation of Wyoming and is an extinct genus of freshwater fish distantly related to modern herrings and sardines. They had a jaw that protruded aggressively upward allowing it to feed in surface waters and devour smaller prey such as schooling, Knightia. This voracious predator is entombed in a fine-grained matrix typical of Fossil Lake.
