What you'll do

Guests will meet up with me near the fossil quarry site. A short car ride and a very short hike to the location will give adventurers plenty of time to comb through the fossiliferous material and find some amazing fossils. Every single person who takes this experience will be guaranteed to see fossils and take some home with them! Hammer and chisel will be provided for the guests to use (although most fossils can be retrieved without tools). Water and light snacks will also be served. The rest of the time will be spent looking for fossils to take home!

Scott

Wandering around the Las Vegas desert for 30 years has made me appreciate the wonder and beauty that this harsh setting has to offer but only for the keen of eye and worthy traveler. I have mapped out many locations in the Las Vegas desert to explore and hunt for fossils! Every location I know of is on public land where fossil hunters can collect to their heart’s content.

What's included

Food
Light snacks will be served. Please let me know allergies beforehand.
Drinks
Equipment
Small hammer and chisel will be provided for guests to use but most fossils can be claimed without tools. Also a small brush…
