Event description

Description

Collect fossils older than dinosaurs! At Whispering Winds, Spring Valley, you will tour fossil collections of ancient sea creatures including Gastropods, Cephalopods, Trilobites, Fisherites, Bryozoans and Brachiopods. Then you’ll travel to 2-3 sites to hunt, all within 7 miles of Spring Valley, and collect your own fossils- guaranteed! Bring a bag for carrying your fossils. If you bring a hammer, you must have eye protection. There is always the chance that you could find ice-aged fossils, Native American artifacts, cold water agates, and geodes. All ages welcome!

Note: Eagle Bluff van transportation is NOT available for this class. You will be driving yourself to Whispering Winds hobby farm.

**Schedule a private fossil hunt, tailored to you. For 1 to 10 individuals. Perfect for individuals trying to grow their collection, birthday parties, completion of Boy and Girl Scout Badges, or just a fun day out!

Optional fee: $5 for a laminated fossil site map, several different site maps are available. Cash payable to instructor at class
