Fossil Finds! (Virtual Explorer Day)

February 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PST

Join us for another exciting NatureKids BC Virtual Explorer Day with the Pacific Museum of Earth at UBC on fossils!

We will dig (virtually) into the earth to find fossils and learn how palaeontologists use clues from the past to learn about ancient life. We’ll find out how fossils form, the process for determining their ages and how to identify the different types. Our Nature Mentor will be Daniel Gowryluk.


February 9
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PST

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
