Penn Dixie looking for world record Saturday

Penn Dixie is looking for a lot of diggers Saturday.

The fossil park and nature reserve in Hamburg is trying to set a Guinness world record for the world's largest fossil dig from 9 a.m. to noon.

Admission is reduced to $5 per person, and includes a commemorative shirt, fossil collecting bag, and all the fossils you can collect. A team of up to 10 diggers can register for $40. No experience is necessary, although registration is encouraged at

Serving as grand marshal of the event will be Haji Abdul Majid Butt, geoscientist and chairman of the Centre for Himalayan Geology in Kashmir, India. He will tour the facility and meet with stakeholders to further develop Penn Dixie's partnership with the recently formed Kashmir Triassic Fossil Park.
