Fossiling at Big Brook

(ages 8 and up, under 18 with adult)

Travel back millions of years to when dinosaurs roamed the earth and much of New Jersey was submerged under warm, shallow ocean. Using sieves and trowels, we will search for the remains of marine creatures like sharks and extinct mollusks that once inhabited these ancient waters. We will meet at the parking lot on Boundary Road and hike about ½ mile to our entry point into Big Brook. All persons attending program must wear closed-toe shoes that can get wet. It is highly recommended that participants bring a complete change of clothes including dry footwear for after the program.
