Event description

Description

Did you know that fossils older than dinosaurs can be found right here in Minnesota's Driftless Area? This family-friendly afternoon begins At Whispering Winds, Spring Valley, where 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! There is always the chance that you could find ice-age fossils, Native American artifacts, cold water agates, and geodes. All ages welcome!

We recommend bringing a bag for carrying your fossils. You are also welcome to bring a hammer, but if you do so we require eye protection.

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

**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! Contact Eagle Bluff for more information.

Instructor -Beverly Sandlin is an amateur paleontologist and host of Bluffcountryfossils.net & accompanying Fossil Adventure Blog. She has lectured throughout southeast Minnesota on fossils and has hosted numerous tours and fossil hunts. Whispering Winds and one collection site are handicap accessible.
