This 1/2 day trip includes a guided tour of our museum, instruction on fossil collection, transportation to a dig site and the opportunity to discover fossils at one of our many active dig sites. Take an adventure back to Cretaceous times when dinosaurs walked the earth and great sea reptiles ruled the oceans.
Become a palaeontologist as you join the Canadian Fossil Discovery Center's excavation team in the scenic Pembina Hills. Work alongside CFDC staff as they uncover 80 million-year-old fossils. Learn about the tools and techniques used to carefully unearth these rare fossils that offer a glimpse into a forgotten age and the fantastic sea creatures that lived here. Imagine being the first in 80 million years to lay eyes on a fossil you have just uncovered. Help map in and record your find to add to the Center's collection. Get down and dirty while applying a plaster field jacket to protect newly exposed fossils.
