Fox Island Park celebrates National Fossil Day with fossil pile

Local News

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Oct. 14 is National Fossil Day, and Fox Island County Park hosted a Fossil Pile to celebrate.

Folks of all ages had the chance to dig up different rocks and artifacts they found in the park.
Any treasures discovered were “finders keepers.”

“It’s education outside, outdoors, out in nature and so, you can see how young these kids are. And if you can start them off young, then that’s just a very positive thing,” said Naturalist Jeff Ormiston, environmental educator for Allen County Parks and Rec.

More information on the park can be found on the Fox Island County Park website.
