Discovery After Dark
Come enjoy the evening beauty of Fossil Rim with an event that starts after our Halloween Spooktacular! We’ll start with an interactive learning experience where you can discover nocturnal animal adaptations. Then, using spotlights, we’ll go on a guided sunset tour focused on the nightlife of Fossil Rim. We’ll see Fossil Rim’s exotic animals and some native Texas species. We may see some animals that don’t usually come right up to vehicles during daytime Safari Tours! Afterwards, we’ll adventure on foot by taking a hike after dark. Participants will meet at the Tours Window, located at Fossil Rim’s Nature Store. This activity, which will last approximately three hours, costs $35 per person and is limited to 16 participants. This tour is recommended for ages five to adult. Reservations are required; call 254.897.2960. $35 per person.
Date: October 26, 2019, 7-10 p.m.
Fun Finding Fossils
Homeschool Class/Dig + Tour: Fossil Rim used to be underwater! A lot of sea creatures left an abundance of interesting evidence that they used to live here. That evidence is found in our rocks and fossils. Find and identify fossils, understand them and how they got here. You can even take one or more home! To register, call 254.897.2960. $23 per person.
Date: October 29, 2019, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
