Go on a Fossil Field Trip!

Ancient coral in hands.

Looking for something fun and educational to do? Listen to our curator, Corina, talk about the common fossils anyone can find in their community and then go searching yourself!

There are rocks (and fossils!) like these in your neighbourhood, it might be a seat in your school yard or a wall near a community centre or along a path.

We challenge you to go on a #fossilfieldtrip. Venture out into your neighbourhood and search for Limestone or Dolostone landscape blocks. Or examine stone stairs and buildings. There is a good chance that fossils are hiding within!
