Today Mel Camp talks with executive director of Penn Dixie Fossil Park and Nature Reserve, Phil Stokes. He takes Mel to a restricted area where visitors are not allowed to go. The area is restricted because the area has recently become eroded by the stream. The water went through all the layers of rock exposing thousands, if not millions of years of fossils and Dr. Stokes explains how a fossil becomes a fossil.

And don’t it is Fossil Friday. Every Friday for the next 3 Fridays the admission price is only $7 and you can hunt all the fossils you want. Bring the family for a day of fun at Penn Dixie Fossil Park and Nature Reserve.
