  • We had so much fun here! We have never successfully hunted for fossils until here. The information board is very helpful and we met some knowledgeable people who assisted us. At first it seems hard to find but once you get an eye for what you are looking for, it becomes easier. Only take what you will use personally so others will have success too.
  • Trilobites are small, think quarter or dime, but also find fossils of plants. Easy and fun. Dig out rocks and break apart layers or pick up rocks on surface and break apart. Best tool I think flat head thin screwdriver and little hammer. Kids will love too.
