Crews will spend two days hiking side canyons looking for fossils and learning about the geological and paleontological history of the region. Participants will enjoy a night at the Colorado Canyons Association’s Catalpa Camp with expertly prepared meals featuring local ingredients and wine. Hiking and some light paddling.
