Be prepared to get a little muddy and wear play clothes. If visiting a creek, wear appropriate footwear. Some locations may require a bit of walking to get to the fossil finding location. Fossil finding in our area doesn’t require many tools, but you may want to bring a small bag to collect your treasures.
