Family Fossil Dig

Saturday, March 25, 2017

Are there any aspiring paleontologists (fossil hunters) in your family? Have you ever wondered why we’re called Fossil Rim Wildlife Center? After a brief introduction to fossils so that you will know what you’re looking for, we’ll load into one of our tour vehicles and drive to one of our fossil pits and dig in! You’ll be able to keep at least a couple of the fossils you find. The day includes a full two-hour guided tour of the park. All ages are welcome for this activity, which meets at the EcoCenter. There’s a 10-percent discount for members. You are welcome to bring excavation tools, such as child-size shovels and picks, as well as buckets and brushes. Reservations are required and please make at least three days in advance.
