Found this site on an iPhone app when I was looking for something fun to do w/ my daughter. I didn't even know it existed and is pretty close to my house.The staff volunteering at the MO Institute of Natural Science was a wealth of knowledge! Plus, they let you dig for fossils (which isn't difficult b/c they are everywhere, even just on top of the ground above the cave). Fun place to visit!
