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!  Don't forget your sense of adventure!

Saturday, October 7th, 2017- Join us in sunny Peru!  You won't need your passports for this trip...because we're headed to Kansas!  We'll take you to a road cut that has plentiful fossils, and we'll be at the site from 1:00pm-3:00pm Cost: $15 per person.  Space is limited!

Saturday, April 28th, 2018- This trip will likely be to Sulphur Oklahoma, but check back for more details!
