Fossil Field Trips

Have you ever wanted to learn more about paleontology?  Join us in the field, and be a paleontologist!  We'll take you to sites with easy collecting conditions that are ideal for kids and adults with no prior fossil collecting experience.  You will keep everything you find, and we'll be there to help you identify your discoveries!  Pack a lunch, and bring your sense of adventure!
