Guided Fossil Hunt

June 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Calling all amateur paleontologists! Come dig up some Middletown history at the Poricy Brook Fossil Beds. Expect to find marine fossils from the Cretaceous period, 65-72 million years ago. Meet directly at the Poricy Park Fossil Beds for a short orientation before getting right into the fossil beds. An experienced guide will provide you with a trowel and sifter, as well as help you identify your treasures.

Please wear rubber boots or old sneakers, as your feet will get wet. Sandals, flip-flops, and other slip-on footwear are prohibited.

Date: 06/26/2022
Time: 11am
Price: $5
Ticket Info: All children must be accompanied by an adult. Please preregister on Community Pass:
