My family is going to be in Virginia for the month of August. We will be around Newport News, Urbanna and the Massanutten area. My son is a fossil nut - he aims to be a Paleontologist when he grows up. When I was researching Virginia and things to do, I learned about the rich fossil history there, and the wonderful opportunities there are to collect fossils. I would really like for my kids to have a productive time searching for fossils, so I thought I would post a note on here to see if anyone knows of an affordable fossil hunting expedition that our family could go on? My kids were so excited when they heard they could go fossil hunting, they automatically started watching youtube videos of people fossil finds in the area. I am attempting to lower their expectations by explaining that many of those people have permission to hunt on private property, thats why they are able to find such good hauls (and that they are quite experienced ) If there aren't any suggestions for fossil hunting guides, which of the state parks would you recommend that I take them to with the highest chance of finding a couple fossils? I understand nothing is guaranteed. I also know that the summer will be overcrowded with people searching, but it is what it is. I appreciate any help and guidance that can be offered.
