2020 Mazon Creek Fossil Tour
August 29, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - August 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm$150.00
Join us on Saturday August 29th OR Sunday August 30th 2020 for our annual Mazon Creek Fossil Tour in Morris, IL!
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn about the environment, ecosystems, and climate of Northern Illinois as it was 300 million years ago by collecting fossil specimens at the Mazon Fossil Beds. The adventure begins with a hayride to the original site of the discoveries along the Mazon Creek as it was in the mid-1800s and the opportunity to collect the unique concretions such as ferns and horsetails. Bring a bucket, rock hammer, shoes to wear in the creek, and casual clothing. Everyone will have specimens to take home to remember the day. Afterwards, more fun is to be had with cocktails and al fresco dining to celebrate your finds.
All proceeds will go to the Canal Corridor Association to help preserve I & M Canal history, protect its environment, and create tourism.
Fun for all ages!
Price per person/per day: $150.00*
