Fossil Hunting (Take 2)

  • Needs a date

  • Caesar Creek State Park

    8570 E State Route 73, Waynesville, OH (map)

    39.499790 -84.001282

  • We are still very interested in going on a fossil hunt at Caesar Creek. I found several interesting sites for those who haven't been yet or want more info.

    1. A video of the site with some interesting background information (I can't vouch for the accuracy of this but it looks like this person did his homework) http://www.youtube.co...

    2. A group that goes on monthly fossil hunts around Ohio - http://www.drydredger...

    3. An organized hunt from the park is on May 30. Event details are here - http://consumer.disco...

    So who is up for another try at a fossil hunt? We could either go May 30 or try for another date in June or July. Also, while researching this I found that there are many other sites in Ohio. This just happens to be a very good site, well known and pretty safe for kids.

    We did this a couple of years with a homeschooling group & had a great time. One thing to keep in mind is that the area where you fossil hunt has no shade at all so autumn is a great time of year for this trip. Is there still interest?

    Hi Jen, Sue is out of town at the moment, but I'll be at game night on Friday if you'd like to talk shop about a fossil trip. :) -Julia
