Explore the ancient Salt Water tropical sea that once covered the State of Michigan. Walk along the floor of this ocean looking for creatures that once inhabited it. Join PaleoJoe as he guides you through this treasure trove of Michigan Fossils. The group will stop at no less than 3 fabulous sites where participants can pick up and keep as many fossils as they can carry. Brief discussion on site will explain our ancient prehistoric past and what lies beneath the ground. In the final stop deep in the LaFarge Quarry in Alpena Michigan you will see literally millions of fossils and be able to keep as many as you can carry. Make it a family trip and bring a bucket to take home any fossils you find!
