Cathy Young

Mid-Atlantic Fossil and Nature Adventures

Abstract: 'Fossil Collecting by Boat on the Eastern Seaboard'

Located in nearby West Chester, Pennsylvania, Cathy Young runs Mid-Atlantic Fossil and Nature Adventures, a fun and educational fieldtrip service. Her passion for learning puts experts with those curious to learn in the outdoors to see and sometimes collect minerals, fossils, and other natural specimens.

What can be more exciting than accessing a fossil-collecting site by water?! As the eastern United States Atlantic Coastal Plain is chock full of the amazing remains of sea creatures long-gone, our shores are ripe for collecting. With a guided expedition, one can gain a fuller experience, as well as a productive outing.

To learn more about how you and your family or friends could have their own adventure, come listen to Cathy's presentation. It is a rare opportunity, available at our 2017 Symposium. See you there!
