Collect fossils older than dinosaurs! At Whispering Winds in Spring Valley, you will tour fossil collections of ancient sea creatures including gastropods, cephalopods, trilobites, fisherites, bryozoans and brachiopods. Then travel to 2-3 sites to hunt and collect your own fossils- guaranteed! Bring a bag for carrying your fossils. If you bring a hammer, you must have eye protection. There’s a chance you’ll find Ice Age fossils, Native American artifacts, cold water agates, and geodes. The class meets at Eagle Bluff and travels via Eagle Bluff van to Whispering Winds. All ages welcome!

Note: Travel time is included at beginning and end of class. If there are fewer than 3 participants in the class, you will be responsible for your own transportation.

**Schedule a private fossil hunt, tailored to you. For 1 to 10 individuals.

Optional fee: Several different laminated site maps are available from the instructor for $5 each. Cash payable to instructor at class.
