Fossil digs

Mini (1-2 hour) fossil digs may also be organised externally by the one of our independent associates according to availability. Please click here. These are exciting learning experiences for students which will awaken their interest and encourage them to further their studies.

Bring a clipboard and pen/pencil per student. If possible name tags should be prepared at school and worn on day.
