Chattanooga Nature Center Naturalist, Kyle Waggener, will conduct a fossil collecting program at the Durham Mine site located in the Lula Lake Land Trust.
This site is probably the best place in Georgia for collecting fern fossils.
Bring digging tools, hammers and flat chisels, buckets or cardboard flats and newspaper to wrap the specimens. Bring a snack and water bottle, too.
Meet at CNC for a brief orientation and then caravan to the mine site. This is a very popular program and space is limited. Pre-registration and prepayment are required. Call 821-1160 ext. 0 to reserve your spot.
