Want to hunt for fossils in a more intimate setting? Your small group (2-8 guests) can experience a private collecting expedition in the true style of field paleontology. Your guide — a knowledgeable and experienced member of our staff — will take you on a journey through our 54-acre park in search of a range of fossils.
During the two-hour guided tour, you’ll visit our most prolific spots where you’re guaranteed to find fossils — all of which you can keep for your collection. Your guide will also take you to some unexpected places in search of more exotic fossils, including armored fish and the legendary “golden” trilobite. After the guided portion, you can remain on site to continue collecting at your leisure.
Adults $39, Children $35, Members save 10%
Private expeditions are available for all ages. We can schedule an expedition for any day of the week — even when Penn Dixie is closed to the public.
Unfortunately, our private expeditions are not wheelchair accessible. There is considerable walking, standing and slope-climbing involved. However, we may be able to accommodate some mobility impairments. Please contact us if you have concerns.
Since expeditions are outdoors, we recommend appropriate footwear (e.g., sturdy boots), seasonal dress in layers, sunscreen, shade hats (e.g., fedoras or pith helmets), and sunglasses. Bookings require a minimum of two weeks advance notice. Contact us to reserve your tour today!
