Što ćete raditi

Once we have arrived at the parking area, we will take a short walk on a cobble-lined beach to one of Rhode Island's prime fossil hunting areas. I will provide an overview of the geological history of the area, show a few examples of the fossils that may be discovered, and go over basic techniques for fossil hunting. Guests will have a little over an hour to hunt for fossils. I will be right there with you, lending a helping hand and helping you identify any potential fossil finds!
Other things to note
Walking to the site may involve walking on slippery rocks. Fossil hunting is a physical process, so please make sure you are capable of using a hammer and lifting rocks. I am more than happy to help you! Finally, fossil hunting is fickle... there are no guarantees on what you may find on any day.

I am an environmental scientist and professional educator with a love of local geology, especially fossils. My undergraduate and graduate degrees focused on soil science and coastal geologic processes. I have taught at the middle and high school level for 13 years, so I excel at making science accessible at many different age groups.

Gdje ćete biti

Your experience takes place along a beautiful stretch of Rhode Island shoreline. Although we will be looking for fossils, you will want to take some time to admire the sweeping views of Narragansett Bay.

This was amazingly fun! Learning about fossils and then finding your own was seriously awesome. Tim is a great guy - super nice and not intimidating at all. Go do this!

This is one of the best vacation experiences we’ve been on. The location was so beautiful and serene. Our host, Tim was friendly, very knowledgeable and very patient with our 4 year old and his many, many questions. Tim was able to teach and explain a lot to us in simple terms our son (and us!) could understand. He helped us find and dig through some pretty cool plant fossils and even talked to us and showed us about the local wildlife. All in all, it was a really great way to spend the afternoon for us and our kids.

We had such a fun time with our kids digging for plant fossils. Such a unique and new experience for us. My boys loved hammering away at the rocks. Tim was a thoughtful and informative host. We left with a few large specimens for our garden and a few smaller ones too!

Tim is super knowledgeable about the area and was a wonderful guide for our first fossil hunting trip on Rhode Island. He was great with our adult friends as well as the children in the group!! loved the experience, would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in paleontology, geology, or just playing in the dirt!!

Fossil-hunting with Tim had been a great experience that me and husband didn't know would enjoy so much. We found some pretty good fossils (and Tim even gave us some really good ones) and I never knew that breaking rocks could be so relaxing and almost meditative. Tim is very knowledgeable and will answer any questions. We'd totally do this activity again.

Great experience for the day! A lot of fun learning about the area and fossils and then getting dirty with the tools looking for the fossils. Expect to get dirty and have a lot of fun!
