Fossil Wash Day


Saturday, September 15th
9:00 a.m.–Noon

A hands-on science experience included with regular admission!


Wash, rinse, repeat! You have a role to play in the scientific process, searching for bone fragments and objects of interest in dirt excavated from the HMNS dig site near Seymour, Texas.  Join us for a morning of fun as we get messy, washing and sorting approximately 1,000 pounds of red Permian dirt.  Wear clothes you won’t mind getting dirty as you learn about paleontology from specially trained docents.
