The Edelman Fossil Park is one of the best fossil localities in the United States and may hold the key to understanding the mass extinction that wiped out the dinosaurs and 75% of species on Earth 65 million years ago.

We are an academic-community partnership, working closely with Mantua Township and Gloucester County. Our goal is to preserve the uniquely important fossil resources at the Edelman Fossil Park and to establish a Center for K to Gray STEM Education and Citizen Science.

The site is open to visitors only during scheduled events. We host numerous class trips that bring over 6,000 students to the site annually. Our annual community dig day is very popular. This year nearly 2,000 people attended.

For event information to contribute or to be added to our mailing list, contact fossils@rowan.edu
