Family Fossil Hunt

Oct 12 2019 - 10:00am

Step back to a time when the ocean covered New Jersey. We will explore Big Brook and search for fossilized shark's teeth, seashells, and squid. Fee includes bus transportation to Big Brook Preserve in Monmouth County, use of our fossil sifters, and experienced Watershed Educator guide. Be prepared to stand in several inches of water to search for fossils.
Graduate students and families cost of participation will be covered by the graduate school. This cost includes transportation from the Watershed Institute to the Big Brook Reserve via bus. Participants will need to find their own transportation to and from the Watershed Institute (, but we will work to organize car pools. Email (Please only sign-up if you are committed to attending). Ages 6 and up.
