On August 4, 2012, participants joined Ned Gilmore, Collection Manager for the Academy’s Vertebrate Paleontology Collection, for an Adult Field Study to search for fossils at Big Brook in New Jersey. This site is popular among fossil hunters for the abundance of shark teeth and other marine fossils that date from the Late Cretaceous.

The August 4 trip was reserved for adults 18 years and older. A family field trip to Big Brook is scheduled for September 8, 2012. Find out more.
