Fossil and Palaeontology Tour

Discover the geology and fossils of the Jurassic Coast

Palaeontology tour

Prior to the session you will be sent an introductory video on fossils and the Jurassic environment in which they formed. Once in Charmouth, your Warden will do a quick recap for the group, before leading the group onto the beach to search for fossils. At the end of the session the tour covers the Fossil Collecting Code and aspects of conservation associated with the site.

All finds may be taken back to school/college and we can adapt the content of this session to suit your groups needs. These sessions will now take place entirely outdoors.
