May 19th 10 AM at Calvert Cliffs State Park

Let’s get the kids out and dirty! Picnic and fossil hunting at Calvert Cliffs in Lusby, MD. It’s a 1.8 mile hike from the parking area to the beach, but it’s an easy walk and most of it is boardwalk style planks, from what I remember.

Bring the whole family, and we’ll have a picnic lunch while we’re there.

Your kids will get wet and dirty at this – they will be digging in the sand and walking through shallow water hunting for fossils. Bring a bathing suit and water shoes, a towel, and a change of clothes. Plus, any digging/sifting toys that they have.

I don’t think there are grills or anything like that at the beach, so pack a lunch and drinks.

*fossil guarantee due to the fact that I bought a 1 pound bag of fossil shark teeth so that if your kids have trouble finding some, you can arrange that they have a successful hunt.
