Adventures that take you back to the time of the dinosaurs! Husband and wife fossil hunters, Russ and Lori Ball, have combined their teaching skills, educational backgrounds and passions into an educational adventure for ages 8 to 88.

What we offer:

Elementary / Secondary level: based on ages

Classroom: up to three hours of hands on show and tell with slide shows, physical specimens, question period and discussion on fossils, rocks and geology. This can include a word search/crossword/drawing activity for a marking component.

Outdoor: follow up the classroom discussion with a hike, geology lesson, flora and fauna chat, and a fossil hunt. Students would leave the classroom and participate in a short hike and a chance to dig for dead critters.
