Edisto Beach Adventure

Fossil Hunting at Edisto Beach

On location at Edisto Beach State Park, the EBA yields a wide variety of fossils, primarily from land mammals found during the end of the last Ice Age, 11,000 to 50,000 years ago. (A general list of animals can be found below.)

 

The EBA starts in the beach area of the State Park (participants must pay separate park admission). From the parking lot, the primary hunting location is a 1.4 mile walk. However, depending on the volume of material present, nice fossils may be located within a mile.

 

Recommended Items: Water, sunscreen, bug spray, water shoes or sandals, snacks, raincoat, camera/cell phone. Collection pouches provided!
