Fossil Field Experience

Saturday May 22
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Ten million years ago, southern Maryland was a water world inhabited by whales, snails, crocodiles, and giant sharks. Relive this ancient world on Saturday, May 22, at a Fossil Field Experience sponsored by the Calvert Marine Museum. The excursion begins by assembling at the Calvert Marine Museum at 11:00 a.m. Participants will take part in a one-hour paleontology program hosted by the museum's Education Department. At 1:00 p.m. the program continues at a local beach where participants are instructed on how to comb for fossils. Participants get to keep the fossils they find. Admission to the experience is $15 per person, ages 8 and over. An adult must accompany any child under the age of 18. Space is limited. For more information or to register, please contact Melissa McCormick at 410-326-2042 x41, or visit the museum's website at www.calvertmarinemuseum.com. Registration is required by May 17.
