Penn Dixie reopens Saturday!

The weather is beautiful and Penn Dixie’s fossils are waiting for you to uncover them!

It’s the moment that you’ve been waiting for — Penn Dixie reopens this weekend!

We’ll be there from 9-5 pm Saturday April 23 and 10-5 pm Sunday April 24. Get your shovels, rock hammers, boots, and safety googles ready for some serious fossil collecting. If you can’t make it this weekend — no sweat. We’ll be open every weekend — same hours — until June 13, when we open seven days a week. General admission for adults is $9; children $7.

In honor of Earth Day, admission on April 23 is FREE for those who volunteer for a few hours to help clean and beautify Penn Dixie. Here’s what we’re planning:

  • Doubling the size of our butterfly garden with new plants thanks to a generous donation from Wild Birds Unlimited of Blasdell
  • Trash cleanup around the site
  • Cleaning and organizing our massive storage locker

Interested in visiting on off-days? You can book a group tour, or sign up for a membership to visit anytime. For group tours, please book at least two weeks in advance to guarantee a time. Our June schedule is nearly full but we do have a few dates left in May. Don’t delay!

Trilobites, brachiopods, horn corals, crinoids, and many other fossils have been exposed by the winter elements and are ready to be discovered.
