The Mineral Wells Fossil Park will hold its celebration of Earth Science Week with and event called the "Crazy Fossil Dig" on November 7, 2015 from 10AM to 2PM.  

The event features:

  • “Tools of the Trade” display of the various tools used by fossil hunters while looking for and extracting fossils.
  • Fossil identification. Bring in your finds and Dallas Paleontology Society volunteers will try to identify the object and provide some information regarding it.
  • Hands-on samples of the various types of fossils that exist in Texas, with supporting materials describing them.
  • Museum-quality objects found and prepared by members of the Dallas Paleontological Society.
  • “FBI” handouts for kids. The Fossil Bureau of Investigation is a sub-division of the Dallas Paleontological Society and will have materials for kids to join in the fun of the science of Paleontology.
  • History Lessons about the Fossil Park
  • Guided walks around the park

COME DIG FOR FOSSILS WITH US! The first 50 attendees will receive a commemorative Mineral Wells Fossil Park apron, design especially for your next outdoor paleontological adventure! For more information, call the Mineral Wells Area Chamber of Commerce at (940) 325-2557.
