Each ticket purchased adds an entry to win the raffle. Raffle winner will receive a NHSM Lifetime Membership and a personalized one day guided fossil hunting trip to a restricted access beach in Calvert County. As an NHSM Lifetime Membership (value $750) member you will receive discounts on many of our programs—from lectures, workshops, and courses offered in our museum—to canoe trips, nature walks, and fossil hunts in the great outdoors. Members also receive a discount to our annual Spring Gala. Adrien Malick and Nick Spero will lead you on a personalized one day guided fossil hunting trip for a Covid-19 compatible group (presume one family/one car) to a restricted access beach in Calvert County, Maryland. This site is known for an abundance of Miocene Calvert Formation fossils, in particular a large variety of teeth and shells. Large Otodus (Carcharodon/Carcharocles) megalodon teeth (megs) have been found at this site, along with fossils and teeth from whales, dolphins, rays and many other sharks. We will provide directions and meet you at the site. Parking space is limited and restricted on this private property, hence the one car limit.   The trip will take place on a mutually agreed upon Fall 2020 weekend day when all parties are available and when the tides are low and hopefully the weather cooperates.   You can keep what you find, and we promise a unique fun and educational experience. As a bonus, we will probably see Osprey and maybe a Bald Eagle. No extra charge!   About Your Guides Adrien Malick  is a fossil curator at NHSM who grew up collecting fossils on Chesapeake Bay beaches.   Nick Spero is a biologist who is a walking talking encyclopedia of the fossils you’ll be looking for and the nature you will encounter.
