Join the Warden Team at the Centre for a whole day of fossil hunting and activities for families and children! Lots of fun for everyone! If you have ever wanted to try your hand at fossil collecting, then join us for a full day of fossil fun aimed specifically at families and children. Our experienced wardens will be delighted to share their knowledge and experience with you.
Our Fossil Fantastic Days are a great introduction to all aspects of fossils and the Jurassic Coast aimed specifically at children and families.
The Jurassic Coast Trust have teamed up with Furleigh Estate in Salwayash in recognition of their close links to the coast. The award-winning winery will donate 10p from every bottle sold of their “Tyrannosaurus Red” towards the Trust’s education and conservation projects.
With the Jurassic Coast filling with visitors for the busy summer season, new deckchairs, windbreaks and beach shelters are appearing on the beach near the Hive Beach Café, Burton Bradstock in West Dorset.
This two hour session starts up at the Centre with a 20 minute talk from the Centre Warden about the rocks and fossils of Charmouth and how to find fossils on the beach. The group then heads out onto the beach with the wardens and spend the rest of the session looking for fossils.
