Field Trips

Trip dates are tentative and subject to additions and change.


What to bring on Fossil Hunting Trips:


  • Water, Water, Water.
    It's very important to stay hydrated, especially in hot weather.

  • Something to pry fossils out of the ground.
    (A long screwdriver, a claw or rock hammer, a pry bar, or something like that.)

  • Something to put your items in.
    (These could be plastic bags, boxes, a bucket, pill bottles...)

  • Wear sturdy shoes.
    There could be lots of unsteady, sharp terrain where you're looking!

  • Eye protection.
    The dust (and rock chips) can really fly. Better safe than sorry.

  • Magnifying glass.
    Getting a good look at something helps in identification.

  • Personal gear:
    Hat (to shade from the sun), suntan lotion, bug repellent.
