Walk and Talk: Paleontology Fossil Hike

Saturday, July 21, 2018

Join us for a guided hike through prehistory as we explore Flint Hills paleontology. Uncover ancient life from the interior seaway that once covered the Flint Hills. The fossil hike will be guided by Jordan Van Sickler, Assistant Preparator at the University of Kansas Vertebrate Paleontology Lab. He is an experienced paleontologist, participating in several digs in Montana and preparing multiple specimens. Pre-registration is required. Please register online, by calling 785-587-2726, or in person at the Flint Hills Discovery Center. We will meet at the trailhead for the Tuttle Creek Dam spillway off of Beach Road. Participants are responsible for any state park access fees. This event will be held rain or shine, as long as the weather is deemed safe. Please wear walking shoes and sunblock. We encourage you to bring a water bottle!
