City Centre Fossil Hunt
Join the Birmingham & Black Country Wildlife Trust for a short guided walk around Birmingham City Centre to delve into the geological past and discover ancient coral reefs in the walls of buildings!
This geowalk will be led by a geologist who will be on hand to help identify your discoveries and answer your questions about ancient geology and how it affects modern life. This event is being held as part of Earth Science Week, a national festival celebrating geology and earth sciences, to encourage and share interests in what lies beneath our feet.
The circular route will take in five stops around Central Birmingham, starting at the Town Hall, and will take you on a journey back in time to 330 million years ago when Britain was a lush tropical seaside!
Places are limited to 15; to book your place a small donation to the Wildlife Trust is requested (suggested donation is £3). Please book one space per attendee (you may need to book this one at a time). This donation will go towards our work in protecting and enhancing the urban environment for wildlife and people.
