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.
A new book that takes a quirky look at the Jurassic Coast has been published in time for Christmas – and it’s already proving to be a big hit. The Jurassic Coast – A Mighty Tale is published by The Jurassic Coast Trust and is written and illustrated by local artist Tim Britton.
Are you a Primary Teacher and need more help to effectively teach Rocks, Fossils and Evolution in your science curriculum? Then come and join us for a FREE training day led by Primary education consultant David Weatherly. Our special Big Jurassic Classroom Superteachers will also be on hand to take you through their own resources they have developed for the new Primary Science curriculum.
This two hour session starts up at the Centre with a 20 minute talk from the Centre Warden about the 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.
