Ozokwenza

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.

  • Ukubukeza okungu-30
  • Ubuwena buqinisekisiwe
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.

Lapho uzoba khona

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.

Ilinganiswe ku-5.0 kokungu-5 ngokusuka kokushiwo abanye okungu-30.

This is a great experience. Tim is super knowledgeable and explains everything. He is patient and answers questions really well. We were there with 4 kids (2 12 year olds and 2 14 year olds) who definitely learned more about fossils and rocks. I did too!

Tim is a wonderful host. Knowledgeable and truly wants you to find fossils, and helps you find them. There is something very satisfying about listening to the ocean waves while you are cracking open a rock and finding fossilized ferns 300 million years old! You just found something no one else has ever seen before, how cool is that?!

Great experience! Tim is very knowledgeable and personable; we all went home with fossils. This would be an awesome thing to do if you want to show off the area to out-of-town friends/family.
