Outdoor Programs > Stony Fossils



Outdoor Classroom programs at Stony Fossils are held within Mariash Quarry in Stony Mountain, MB, approximately 15 miles north of Winnipeg.

The Stony Fossils site includes an outdoor fossil dig area, work stations, a tent shelter, picnic tables and a school bus that has been converted to display fossils and rocks. While the area is backed by rock walls, the picnic area features grass, trees and portable toilets.


Students are asked to stay within the roped areas. Teachers and chaperones attend free. Find our map or check the Curriculum Links.
