Fossil Field Experience

Saturday, October 19, 2019

At 9:00 a.m., you will meet CMM educators at Cove Point Lighthouse. In our Visitor Center you can learn about Miocene fossils and what to look for. From 9:30 to approximately 11:30 a.m., you will explore the beach to search for fossilized shell, bone, and sharks’ teeth. Lunch is on your own. Picnic facilities are available at the museum. Report to the admission desk at the museum by 1 p.m. to get your admission sticker and to meet up with the educator. You will get a guided tour of our fossil hall and have an opportunity to explore our fossil prep lab. Working with the museum educator, you will identify the fossils you have found. The program ends at 2 p.m., and you are welcome to continue to explore the museum on your own. Wear appropriate clothing for beach combing, and bringing a change of clothes is recommended.
