While it is only an hour drive from Greenville to the Aurora Fossil Museum, you will travel 28 million years back in time. George W. Powell Jr. is a local amateur paleontologist and will be leading this trip. On this trip, you will see the fossil remains of creatures that lived in Eastern North Carolina including: whales, walruses, seals, sharks, stingrays, and fish. You can view Native American artifacts, learn the history of the phosphate mines, and browse the two exhibit buildings and gift shops. Weather permitting, we will take the ferry to Washington for lunch. If you wish to bring home some of the dirt from the Fossil Museum, bring a container with a lid. A five gallon bucket contains thousands of micro-fossils.
*Activity Level: Minumum indoor walking, some outdoor activities.
