Fossils for kids

North Carolina
   North Carolina is a great state for fossil collecting but by far the best location in the state for
collecting is the phosphate mine known as Lee Creek in Aurora, North Carolina.  This is the East
Coast version of Shark Tooth Hill!  The mine is huge!!!  The fossils are literally everywhere you
walk.  The teeth there are a beautiful combination of blues and tan.  To get more information on
