Dig for fossils at Fossil Park in Sylvania, Ohio. 375 million years ago, Northwestern Ohio was under a big body of water, with lots of sea life and vegetation. Today, families can collect shell and plant fossils from the rock quarry where this body of water once existed. Digging tools are not allowed at Fossil Park, however, visitors may bring soft paintbrushes in order to uncover prehistoric treasures. Don't forget a receptacle for your relics, such as an egg carton or an empty milk container. Also, you may want to print out this pamphlet on what kinds of fossils can be found at the park, so you can identify what you discover. This park is perfect for kids, so round up the family, and become an archaeologist for a day at Fossil Park.
