Mine for Gems and Fossils
This is a seasonal activity. During the spring, mining is available on weekends.
During the summer, this activity is available from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.
To share in the experience, participants will need to purchase a bag of "mining rough" that is available in the Friends' bookshop. Mineral and gem or fossil bags are available. Prices range from $5.50 to $9 a bag.
Staff and volunteers will be available to help you identify the fossils and minerals you have mined.
