Be a Paleontologist!

Sun, Apr23

10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Explore Earth's deep past at the Edelman Fossil Park at Rowan University. Explorers of all ages can dig alongside real scientists for 65-million-year-old fossils with their own hands...and take them home! Visitors can also examine Late Cretaceous marine fossils found at this site, including fearsome mosasaurs, 25-foot crocodiles, several species of shark and sea turtles. Talk with Rowan paleontologists about their research into the last days of the dinosaurs and visit the Fossil Park Store. Admission to the event is FREE. Cash-only parking is $10 per vehicle. The Edelman Fossil Park is not yet open to the public for regular tours, so take advantage of this unique opportunity for family scientific discovery! No metal tools are allowed in the quarry, but you may bring plastic shovels and buckets. We also have plastic tools for guests to use. Please bring sun screen and wipes (there are no washing facilities at this time).
