Notes regarding time



Fossil Hunts Calling all amateur paleontologists! Come dig up some Middletown history at the Poricy Brook Fossil Beds. Expect to find marine fossils from the Cretaceous period, 65-72 million years ago. Meet directly at the Poricy Park Fossil Beds for a short orientation before getting right into the fossil beds. An experienced guide will provide you with a trowel and sifter, as well as help you identify your treasures. Please wear rubber boots or old sneakers, as your feet will get wet. Sandals, flip-flops, and other slip-on footwear are prohibited. Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.


Ages 5+ 


$5.00 (R) | $6.00 (NR)


Pre-registration is required. For online registration and credit card payment: Check payments are accepted in person at the Recreation Administrative Office until 4:00pm, M-F. Tell them you saw it on Macaroni Kid.
