Fossil Hunting Tour

Fossil hunter tour.

As you arrive at the Cretaceous Ore Pile, the hunt for fossils begins. Search for sharks' teeth, clams and other ocean critters. These fossils were formed 86 million years ago when a sea covered the area. Best of all - you can keep what you find! Please wear old clothing and remember to bring drinking water. Tour runs about one and a half hours.

When offered

Fridays and Saturdays at 10 a.m., beginning the Friday before Memorial Weekend and ending the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend.
