|Paleo Discoveries' East Coast Summer Tour Returns!
Welcome back! Paleo Discoveries is based in Vero Beach, Fla. and specializes in guided fossil-hunting tours and educational programs geared to people of all ages. While our guided tours and class trips generally take place on the Peace River in central Fla, our on-location educational programs are great for libraries, nature centers and summer schools. Last summer's NJ-NY tour was such a success that we're repeating it again this year with more available dates in July from the 10th to the 31st. Read on for more info or Contact Us for available dates. Last summer's tour took us to the Morris Museum and libraries in Bedminster, Bernardsville, Chatham, Hackensack, Randolph, Wayne, Oradell, Franklin Lakes, Harrington Park and more. Don't miss out on the summer fun! Call us at (772) 539-7005 to schedule a program for your facility.

|Educational Programs make Prehistory come alive!
Looking for something unique and affordable to offer your students or members?
Check out our "Fossil Discovery Hour". This program is a fun and educational exploration of our planet's prehistory with emphasis on paleontology and geology. The program is intended for ages 6 through adult.
What we do in an hour...
1. Fossil "Show and Tell" / Q+A
You could say we bring the museum to you! We have an extensive array of real (most of which were found on our tours) and reproduction fossils that we bring to your facility. These include mammoth and mastodon teeth and tusks, dinosaur teeth, skulls of saber-tooth cats and lions, giant shark teeth, T-Rex, Velociraptor, whale, crocodiles and more. Unlike a museum, however, you can touch and hold many of these fossils which brings a whole new dimension to the experience.
We discuss the animals as the fossils are presented and always encourage questions. This program is very interactive and tons of fun.
2. Real Fossil Dig
Can't get your group out to Montana or the Peace River for a real fossil dig? No problem- we'll bring ours to you! During our mini-dig, participants can find (and keep!) fossils from sharks, stingrays, fish, horses, mammoths, plus bones and teeth from many other animals.
We bring fossil-laden gravel from the Bone Valley Region here in Florida where we do our day-trip tours and supply everyone with a sample. Everyone will go home with at least 10-20 fossils from the list above. Fossil shark teeth between 1/2" and 2 " are especially common.
Additionally, everyone will get a chart
to help identify their fossils.
3. How much does it cost?
The Fossil Discovery Hour on this special tour is $300; subsequent programs the same day and location are $225.
