Fun with Fossils - Kids' Activity and Craft - 2:30 pm

Discover Lake Casa Blanca's ancient past!

Laredo used to look very different than it does now. 40 million years ago, this area was on the shore of an ocean, and strange animals like tarsiers and tiny four-toed horses roamed the area. Scientists know this from the fossils they have found right here at Lake Casa Blanca!

Join us to find out more about Lake Casa Blanca's ancient past, "excavate" your own chocolate chip cookie fossil, and make your own fossil cast to take home. Bring drinking water.

Meet at the Bird Aviary Facility. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Note: Park programs are open to the public and free with park entrance fee ($4/per person age 13 and older; children 12 and under are always free). No need to register -- just show up!
