SEARCH FOR FOSSILS AND LEARN ABOUT YOUR FINDS

Fossil Field Experience at the Calvert Marine Museum


Would you like to find and identify your own fossils? Did you know that the largest exposed seam of Miocene fossils in North America is here in Calvert County at Calvert Cliffs? This explains why even the casual beachcomber finds fossilized shark teeth that are millions of years old. Learn more about this remarkable natural resource, and what it can teach you about our prehistoric past.

The Fossil Field Experience programs are Saturdays May 20, June 17, July 15, August 19, September 16, and October 21. The program begins at the Cove Point Lighthouse at 9 a.m. Participants learn how to find and identify fossils with the assistance of a trained expert. Enjoy time on the beach until 11:30 a.m. Bring a bag lunch or eat at one of the many local restaurants. The program continues at 1 p.m. at the Calvert Marine Museum where you can discuss fossil finds and explore the Paleontology Hall.

The fee for the Fossil Field Experience is $20 per person, ages 8 and over, and includes museum admission. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. For more information and to register, please contact Melissa McCormick at 410-326-2042 x41, or visit the museum’s website at www.bit.ly//FossilFieldExperience.
