Fossil Hunting At Whisky Bridge, Near College Station, TX- Hunt for Eocene (40-45 Million Years Ago) Marine Fossils
March 6, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Fossil Hunting – Hunt for Eocene (40-45 Million Years Ago) Marine Fossils
All Scouts, All Ranks from Pack 55 are invited to attend this event. Entirely Optional. Bring buckets and tools for digging (garden tools and small shovels work, nothing big required). My kids love this place, and they have asked to go back this Spring, so we figured we would open it up to anyone else interested. It is a bit of a drive, but you can make a day of it and see the Texas countryside. RSVP and text Ethan Perry (832-580-2756) to let me know you are coming so we can watch for you.
Satisfies various electives at all ranks (Digging the Past, Wolf; Super Science, Bear; Earth Rocks!, Webelos and various STEM Nova/Supernova requirements).
You will see a place to park on the railroad trestle side of the highway. Park on the dirt, watching for road debris. Bring everything you need (food, water). There are no bathroom facilities at the old railroad bridge. Nearest facilities will be at stores/gas stations along the highway in either direction. Come prepared.
