GeoBus University of St Andrews – Fossil Hunting at Pittenweem

19 September @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

- Free

The rocks surrounding Pittenweem represent a time around 330 million years ago when the temperatures were tropical, seas were rich with marine life, and land had the first dense forests with enormous trees.

Come for a walk along the shore between Pittenweem and Pathhead at low tide with geologist Dr Catherine Rose and hunt for some special treasures in hidden places.

Wear wellies or sturdy shoes, bring a jacket in case it is cold, and a bag for all the fossils you find!

Suitable for ages 7-12, under 10s with adult.
Limited to 20 – Booking required.
