Fossil Hunters Wanted!

LETS GET HUNTING…….

Last seasons fossil walks at Watchet with local geologists Dave and Andy (D’n’A) proved to be a big hit with fossil enthusiasts of all ages. Hunters found plenty of Devil’s toe-nails (oysters) and large ammonites on all the walks. Each walk was finished with a look at the unique ‘Fossil Islands’ with their Nautilus shells, sea-lilies (‘star stones’), clams and giant worms!

DON’T FORGET YOUR WELLIES!

Get those wellies on ‘cos although we’ve got fossils we’ve also got MUD!

Dave and Andy have arranged three fossil walks this summer 20th July, 17th August and 31st August 2019. Each of the walks starts at 2pm at Watchet Visitor Centre. (Please get there 10 minutes early) Booking is advised as places are limited. Adults £4.00 Children £2.50

D’n’A are always interested to hear of any unusual or large fossil finds.
