Ideally, if you plan to take it to a museum, double bag it in tightly-closed Zip-loc Freezer bags (to help prevent dehydration in a frost-free freezer). Between the 1st and 2nd bag, put a clearly written label with date found, specific location, county, state, and collector name.

If you're not going to take it to a museum, toss it under a bush or something and let it be recycled.
