Dating from the Miocene Epoch-approximately 17 to 10 million years ago, the Cliffs, which are part of the Calvert Formation, are a rear geological phenomenon ranking among the most important fossil research sites in the Mid-Atlantic region. Come spend a day at the Cliffs, explore our private beach, and hunt for fossils at Stratford Hall.  

Excursions are rated at a moderately strenuous activity level requiring long periods of walking/hiking, standing, stooping, bending and occasional climbing over washed up debris or felled trees. Minimum age requirement for paleo excursions is 8 years old. 

This is a weather dependent activity. If we can cancel due to weather, we will attempt to schedule for a future date on the calendar or will issue a refund. 

Additional information will be provided to attendees following registration. Please contact Kelly Childress at with any questions.
