You MUST Go To Quarry Hill Nature Center!
Quarry Hill Nature Center not only has a Fossilized Quarry to explore and dig in, but they have an ongoing fossil exhibit and a replica of Stan – the Tyrannosaurus Rex!
Go HERE for everything Quarry Hill!
And LIKE them on Facebook!
bluffcountryfossils.net will be having a kids’ activities table on fossils at the upcoming The Glacier Stops Here event at the Rochester Civic Center on March 21 & 22, 2014. I thought I had put a post up on Quarry Hill Nature Center already, but apparently I was waiting to get a picture of their quarry and never got around to it. Given that Quarry Hill has a Hatching the Past dinosaur egg exhibit, and a whole lot more, going on right now – no time like the present!
