About Fossil Safari

Interpretive programs begin on the May long weekend and run until mid-October.  Specific dates/times for 2015 guided hikes, tours and other public programs will be available in February.  Please check back for details then. 


The Fossil Safari provides a hands-on discovery of the Park's rich fossil resource that is accessible only by tour.  Our bus drives to a site in the Natural Preserve where a short walk takes you to discover the secrets of fossil-finding.  Learn techniques for identifying the remains of turtles, fish, mammals, and of course, dinosaurs. No digging is involved and all material is left at the site.
