Penn Dixie Fossil Park & Nature Reserve at 4050 North St. in Blasdell has a legendary treasure trove of fossils. There are thousands of fossils to be discovered and collected among the mounds of stone, dirt, rocks and water. It's on the site of the former Pennsylvania Dixie cement quarry, which closed in the early 1970s. The fossil park opened to the public in 1993. Dozens of visitors were on a journey to find their treasures, Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017. It's open to the public seven days a week until Sept. 4. From Sept. 4 through Oct. 9, it will be open on weekends only, then will close for the season.
