Summer Camp: Junior Paleontologist (Grades: Entering 6 - 9)

Monday, June 18, 2018

Become a junior paleontologist and hunt local beaches for fossil shark teeth, whale bones, and the shells of ancient snails and clams. Work with our professional paleontologists to uncover the mysteries of these ancient animals and the environments in which they lived. Learn collecting techniques and how to properly preserve your specimens. Keep a field journal, complete with your own drawings and observations. Get a special behind-the-scenes look at the amazing fossil collection at Calvert Marine Museum. The final day of camp, invite your family along for a river cruise on the Wm. B. Tennison, and show off your specimens in a fossil exhibition!
