Field Trip: Fossil Hunting at Seafield, Kirkcaldy

25 September @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

- Free

Come and hunt for fossils at Seafield shore with Dr. Katie Strang and GeoBus!

The rocks at Seafield are around 330 million years old, deposited at a time when Scotland lay close to the equator and experienced a hot and humid climate. Come along and chat to geologists to find out all about the ancient environments; from volcanos, to rivers, to the remains of tropical coral reefs full of fossils.

There is limited parking available at the beach and accessibility information can be found on the Fife Coast & Countryside Trust website – https://fifecoastandcountrysidetrust.co.uk/walks/fife-beaches/kirkcaldy-seafield/
