The Earth Beneath Our Feet – Family Fossil Hunt!

**UPDATE – NEW DATE – Now Saturday, November 10, 2018**

10am to 12pm


For all of you who have kids who are curious about geology and fossils, this event is for you! It’s a fossil hunt especially for the young ‘uns!

Join local legend and geologist, Dr. Dave Noe, for a fun experience in the Adobe badlands near Hotchkiss, where we will become paleontologists, find fossils of sea creatures who lived underwater, and imagine what they looked like and how they might have lived.

We will meet in the main parking lot at Hotchkiss High School and then walk a few hundred yards to a bare hillside on “H Hill,” where the fossils can be found. After a while, we’ll show what we collected, and even draw pictures of the creatures! It will be like science and art!

This fun event is for kids who are accompanied by an adult. One registration per family/group required.  Limited to 15 registrants. An online sign-up is required. Click here to sign up. Be sure to bring a sun hat, outdoor shoes, water, and snacks. If it rains, we will reschedule.

Questions? Call the Paonia Library at 970-399-7881.

This Family Fossil Hunt is sponsored by Delta County Libraries and Western Slope Conservation Center.
