IN THE EVENT OF RAIN

An Indoor Program is in place to offer a suitable program alternative if rain disrupts our opportunity to offer the Fossil Dig Adventure Tours.

The program begins with a Guided V.I.P. Tour of the museum. The program also includes an introduction to fossil collecting techniques, identification and the significance of fossils.

Participants will spend the duration of the program with a museum guide participating in the activities that paleontologists do during the winter months (or rainy summer days).

A rain day discount will be offered when this program is pursued as an alternative to booked Fossil Dig Adventure Tours. Keep your booking and enjoy this indoor alternative!

IN THE EVENT OF UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES

Bookings with the CFDC may need to be rescheduled or cancelled in very rare circumstances. Please be aware that any down-payments will be reimbursed in case of cancellation due to the CFDC.
