Fossil Hunting in the Kansas City area

Recommended Posts


I am a completely inexperienced fossil hunter currently living in a suburb of Kansas City, about 30 minutes from the Missouri side of Kansas City. I know a lot of land in Kansas is privately owned and off-limits to fossil hunters, but I'm not so sure about what's on the Missouri side. Are there any places around Kansas City that are relatively novice-friendly that I could start out with?

Hi, mate, but instead of just asking for other peoples honeyholes, could you please do an introduction post first. 

You know, instead of just 'gimme'?

There are many spectacular posts on this forum sharing the fossils and geology of the KC metro area. Here is one of my favorite threads of all time:

From what I've read, you should be able to find many sites with little effort.

There is also this helpful website:  LINK


Google "Fossil Hunting Missouri".  ;) Doing your own research is very rewarding when it does pay off.

Also, look into joining a local rock/mineral/fossil club.  Lots to learn and like minded people to meet.  :)
