Bring your family out to the Russell Wildlife Area and take a hike with the naturalist to search for fossils of plants and animals that scientists believe lived in a shallow sea across Iowa nearly 300 million years ago. You will find fossils such as crinoids, brachiopads and even bryozoans. Be sure to bring a flashlight, wear sturdy shoes and clothes that can get dirty! This event is for all ages.
