Fossils of Florida

Join Derek Demeter, director of the Emil Buehler Planetarium at Seminole State College in Florida, for a trip through time, exploring the various fossils found in Florida.

Outside of his role as an astronomer, Derek is a SCUBA diver and fossil hunter and loves to share this passion by sharing his wonderful discoveries with communities around the country. We will explore the geological timelines and the fossils found within them, including many examples for guests to see and touch.
