Fossils: A Blast from the Past!

What is a fossil?  How did it get there?  Come out to the park to learn about the fantastic world of fossils and how to identify some of them that we may see here in coastal North Carolina.  Each one tells its own story.  You will even get a chance to make your own fossil to take home!

Space is limited; REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED by contacting the park office: (910) 326-4881.
