Join us on a trip to Caesar Creek Lake in Warren County, Ohio, for a day of hunting fossils. Answers in Genesis geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling will lead this one-day excursion to one of the most popular fossil-hunting locations in the region.
This exciting, hands-on experience comes with many highlights, including special geology presentations and personal instruction from Dr. Snelling. Enjoy fellowship with other museum members in a beautiful state park that offers a variety of additional recreational activities.

We cannot wait for the next [event] . . . so we can come again and hopefully plan for a longer trip [with] more time to watch the shows in the museum and appreciate it more. Even though we made a fast trip there and back home we loved it and were more relaxed on this trip than any other we have ever been on.”
