WHAT IS PETRIFIED WOOD? – A Walt Wright Seminar in Ventura

WHAT IS PETRIFIED WOOD?
A SEMINAR in VENTURA
August 26-28, 2011

Lecturer: Walt Wright, Paleobotanist

ABOUT THE SEMINAR: This is an opportunity to learn about the complex and
beautiful world of petrified wood. Become more knowledgeable about the woods in
your own collection and about what and where to collect and buy. Learn about
the fossilization of wood: it’s age, origin and occurrence. Learn how to
identify different kinds of petrified wood yourself with simple tools.
The intensive 2 1/2 day seminar will emphasize identification of petrified wood,
with samples from Walt’s extensive collection as well as those brought in by
participants. You may bring a few pieces of petrified wood for Walt to
identify. You should plan to bring a good 20X magnifying lens.

Recommended reading includes the following book: Bruce Hoadley: “Identifying Wood: Accurate
Results with Simple Tools.” Walt will bring a selection of books on petrified
wood as well as 20X lenses for purchase at the seminar.
There is much to learn about Petrified Wood: more than can be covered in just
one seminar. Each of Walt’s seminars is a little different. Each one
contributes more to your understanding. So, even if you have attended prior
seminars, you will improve your knowledge of this fascinating subject.

ABOUT THE LECTURER: Walt Wright, a renowned paleobotanist, has probably
identified more petrified wood than anyone else in the world. For the past 20
years he has been conducting Petrified Wood Identification Seminars. Walt’s
career has included being an educator, naturalist, geologist, botanist and paleobotanist.
