Founded in 2010, UKAFH (UK Association of Fossil Hunters) is now the largest fossil hunting society in the UK. We encourage everyone, of all ages, and all abilities, to enjoy learning and understanding geology and palaeontology (fossils) on our great organised field trips.
UKAFH is managed as a non profit association along with UK Fossils, as a subsidiary of UKGE. UKAFH has successfully grown over the years and we are now in a position to supply the resources and time to expand this organisation even more, whilst retaining the emphasis on family events.
“We are a family friendly club and offer frequent field trips across the UK at some of the very best fossil sites. Whether you’re just starting out or are already a seasoned collector, this is a terrific club to be part of, our aim is to bring fossil enthusiasts together, to respect the fossil collecting code of conduct, and to educate the next generation” – The leaders of UKAFH
We have a great track record and lots of happy members! Everyone will find a UKAFH hunt to be a great day out! It’s a fun and educational experience for families and individuals and moreover, the sites we visit will guarantee success in you finding fossils to take away, along with memories of a richly rewarding experience.
UKAFH’s team are highly experienced in providing regular fossil hunts. We have great leaders, all of whom are very knowledgeable about the locations we visit and the fossils to be found there. All UKAFH leaders are fully trained in First Aid.
Events are free for members via our low cost annual membership.
We also offer a place to communicate and share with UKAFH members knowledge, opinion and experiences on our Facebook page.
