Canceled: Remake Learning Days- Fossil Frenzy: Digging through PA’s Past

Due to the weather, this event has been canceled. Please attend another fossil frenzy in the future! 

 

Did you know we have fossils right under our feet? Come learn about the types of fossils we find here at Swatara State Park, how they were created, and what they can tell us about our past. Then we’ll try our hand as paleontologists and dig for some fossils in our tried-and-true fossil hill! The park will provide plastic digging trowels, but feel free to also bring your own tools. Program is free, but please register in advance by clicking the green button. Program will meet at the Swopes Valley Trailhead (40.522343,-76.469334) and we will walk (approx. 1/2 mile) to the fossil hill together.

All programs are subject to change due to weather or staffing shortages. Please check the DCNR Calendar of events or Facebook page for cancellations or changes to programs. If you have concerns or require special accommodations, please reach out to us at least 72 hours prior to the event at 717-865-6470 or email us at qheist@pa.gov.
