Event description

Description

Junior Paleontologists will enjoy seeing and touching real fossils as they wonder and delight in our planet’s past. We’ll use special tools to break apart “dinosaur eggs” and uncover “ancient” treasures.

Ages 2-6, only. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Please register the child(ren) only. Adults do not need to register.

Please arrive a few minutes before 11. We know that sometimes late arrivals can't be helped, but arriving late can disrupt the attention of the group.

What to Bring

Please wear closed-toe shoes; walking in grass and up and down hills will be necessary.

Please Note: There are no bathrooms in the park and no drinkable water, so please plan to bring a water bottle and come prepared to only have portajohns available.

Registration

You MUST pre-register for this program.
