Family Field Trip: Streams and Fossils

Monday October 26

9:30 AM  –  12:00 PM

Preregistration is required for all students/children participating. Adult chaperones/parents must register and should attend with their child. Suitable for 2nd-6th grade equivalent, but older and younger siblings may attend if they are registered and paid (under 3 years free, but should still register as they contribute to the maximum number of group members). This program is designed for homeschoolers/virtual learners.

Students participants should meet at the PlayScape Pavilion at our Rowe Woods location with a caregiver/designated adult.

With a naturalist, families will explore the rocks and fossils of Avey’s Run stream. Learn what lived here when the area was a warm shallow sea and what evidence was left behind.  While we explore, we’ll keep an eye out for aquatic animals that are adapted to thrive in the stream today. 

What to wear/bring: Please dress for the weather as this program will take place outside. Bring a water bottle and a mask.

Members $7 per child; nonmembers $11 per child (includes daily admission). 

Designated overseer: If a parent/caregiver is unable to attend an event, the child may attend a program with an adult designated to oversee the experience of the child (for example: grandparent, another homeschool parent, etc.). We request that one adult oversee no more than six children.
