Calling all amateur paleontologists!  Come dig up some Middletown history at Poricy Brook Fossil Beds.  Expect to find marine fossils from the Cretaceous period, 65-72 million years ago.  Meet at the Poricy Park Nature Center for a short orientation before travelling to the fossil beds.  An experienced guide will provide you with a trowel and sifter, as well as help you identify your treasures.  Please wear rubber boots or old sneakers as your feet will get wet.  Sandals, flip-flops, and other slip-on footwear are prohibited.  Ages 5+, all children must be accompanied by and adult.
