about Penn Dixie Site:
The Penn Dixie Site, a former quarry, is home to Devonian era fossils over 380 million years old that were formed in what was once a tropical sea. Visitors can dig into the shale at the northern end of the site, using a small digging tool and pail, to uncover fossils. Tour guides are on hand to answer any questions and provide assistance.
Penn Dixie also hosts astronomy programs, nature and bird walks, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, a kids' summer camp program, fossil-digging birthday parties, and more.
