FOSSIL ADVENTURE DAY
Date: July 7, 2021
Time: 10:00 AM start time
Location: Calvert Marine Museum- Solomons, MD
Details: At 10 a.m., participants are dropped off at the Cove Point Lighthouse, where they will meet CMM educators. The program leader teaches a short lesson on local Miocene fossils and what to look for along the beach. From 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., you will explore the beach to search for fossilized shells, bones, and shark teeth. After fossil collecting, work with museum educators to identify the fossils you have found. The program ends at 12 p.m. Please wear appropriate clothing for beach combing (don’t forget water shoes and sunscreen). A change of clothes is recommended. If you have any sifters or other tools you use for fossil hunting, we encourage you to bring them. Please bring you own water bottles as there isn’t a drinking water source at the program site.
Age Group: For ages 8-12
