Fossil Program and Dig
Caesar Creek State Park Visitors center (513) 897-1050

Friday, June 1st at 10:00am
Open to homeschoolers of all ages
We need a minimum of 25 kids to do this program so please RSVP by May 15th
RSVP to Deanne

It is recommended to wear sturdy walking shoes, dress to get dirty and bring a bag to put your fossils in. I suggest packing lunch because I don't know if there's any place close to get food.

The day will go something like this
10:00-11:30 Meet at the visitors center. A park ranger will take us outside for a pond study and hike. Then we'll go back to the visitors center to look at the exhibits and have an indoor fossil program.
11:30 We'll eat lunch
After lunch a Ranger will accompany our group to the area where we will dig for fossils.

All who collect fossils must obey the following rules.

1) Fossils may be collected for personal use only.
2) No tools of any sort may be used to collect fossils.
3) Only fossils that are palm-sized or smaller may be taken from the spillway.
4) Vehicles must be parked off the road in the designated area or on the shoulder of the road.
5) No one is allowed to climb the rock walls or the area of debris below the wall
