End Time: 2:00 PM
 Crinoids, commonly known as sea lilies or feather stars, are an animal that most people aren't aware of. They are echinoderms, related to starfish, sea urchins, and sand dollars. They have a five-sided symmetry and regenerate missing limbs. They are not common in today's oceans but were once so abundant, that there are rocks made up of only their skeletal bits. Join Dr. Elizabeth Rhenberg of the West Virginia Geological & Economic Survey and learn about these fascinating and enigmatic creatures. Why are they important to science? What can they tell us about evolution and extinction? We'll answer these questions and more as we dive into depths of both ocean and time. For Teens and Adults. Registration is required.
