Hamburg Open House

Saturday June 22 & Sunday June 23, 10 am to 4 pm

We celebrate 24 years of Hamburg love with an open house for all Hamburg residents!

Join us for a complimentary weekend of fossil collecting at our 54-acre park that was made possible by support from the town that friendship built — Hamburg, NY.

  • Rain or shine, all ages welcome
  • Basic fossil collecting tools provided
  • Please bring a bag, box, or bucket to store your fossils
  • Tours will depart every 15 minutes
  • Wheelchair accessible

Hamburg Natural History Society/Penn Dixie thanks our neighbors in Hamburg and Blasdell, The Hamburg Town Board — current and previous editions — and The Hamburg Town Supervisor’s office for over two decades of support. We also acknowledge The Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, Highway Department, and The Town of Hamburg Department of Youth, Recreation, and Senior Services for their longstanding collaborations.
