Be sure to wear sunscreen bring a hat and also bring cold water . We brought a small shovel and a pick as you really are just digging through dirt that has already been dug so you need to dig a little hole to try to find bigger pieces of unbroken rock. We stayed about 2 hours the fossils we... 更多
My wife, daughter and son-in-law all went to the Fossils at the Fossil School. We had a good time, but the son-in-law had the best time. He is a rockhound and had the patience to find the fossils in the dig spots. Fun for anyone who want to actually dig for fossils!

My advice is to take the negative reviews with a grain of salt. PLENTY of fossils were to be found outside the conservation area and away from the picnic table. We discovered the best ones were in the larger darker flat rocks that we dug from the base of the hill. You'll have to break them open to find them... 更多
