MakeIt! Fossils of the Chalk – GeoAdventures

Craft your own fossil inspired by Kent’s geological heritage!

One of our occasional series of craft led children’s drop in workshops exploring geoscience and our regional geological heritage, linking into the Cross-Channel Geopark, which we’re a geosite of.

If you want to know more about the  project to make a UNESCO Cross-Channel Geopark, which is a partnership between Kent Downs National Landscape (England) and the Caps et Marais d’Opale Regional Nature Park (France), CLICK HERE.

This activity will run in our Education Room on the lower ground floor 10.30am – 12.00pm and 1.30pm-3.00pm. The workshop is suitable for ages 4-11, but if you’re older or younger you’ll still be more than welcome.

No booking is necessary, although if it gets a little busy we may have to limit numbers for everyone’s comfort and safety.

Activities are FREE with but a donation (suggested £1.00-2.00 per child) towards workshop materials is appreciated.
