School & Group Tours

Now taking reservations for the 2023 season! We will work with your group to provide a safe and fun adventure! 

Please note: We are mostly booked for spring 2023 morning field trips. We still have availability for trips in the afternoons (12 pm start time and later). Our summer and fall schedule is still open!

Guided Tours: Penn Dixie’s guided tours are led by our trained staff and volunteers who provide age-appropriate presentations on the history of planet Earth. Your students will experience earth science in a unique, hands-on, and outdoors setting. They will learn about deep time, extinct life, erosion/deposition, minerals and , of course, fossil collecting. All geological specimens found during field trips may be kept by students. From April to November, we welcome:

  • School groups (Pre K-12 through college)
  • Day care groups
  • Scout and youth organizations
  • Special needs groups

Our group rate is $8 per person. One teacher/chaperone is included with every 10 registrants; additional teachers/chaperones are $10 each. This rate is based on groups of 10 or more when booked at least two weeks in advance.

We also offer a personal tour of Penn Dixie for teachers who are not familiar with our facilities. There is no charge for this tour. Please contact us for arrangements.

Guided tours typically range from 1-1/2 to 2 hours, but can be adapted to different lengths to meet your school’s needs. For additional information or to book one of our programs, call (716) 627-4560 or use the form below.
