Fossil Ridge Tour

Or, you can choose our more adventurous tour. The tour is docent-led and offers a guided tour of the different types of fossils hidden in the Texas Hill Country. Groups or parties will travel up the mountain and learn about the different types of fossils, rocks, and Cretaceous creatures that once roamed the area. Each person on tour is allowed to take 1 fossil home!

Our homeschool programs are 2 hours long and TEKS aligned, covering many areas. We focus on a STEAM curriculum that youth will enjoy and remember! The curriculum includes education, games, exploration, and discovery while encouraging values such as teamwork and trust, problem-solving, stewardship, and the core routines of outdoor education and nature connection.
