About Explore the unique Fossil Trail

A little known fact in Worcester is a unique fossil trail. What makes it different is that the fossils can be explorer with touch, opening the world of fossils to the blind and deafblind people.

The late George van Heerden was the creator of this tactile fossil trail. With his love and passion for nature and history, he approached a team of experts with a project plan and facilitated the project till his passing in 2008. His wife, Anlo however, continued to manage and coordinate the project.

The open air exhibition makes it an exceptional experience and the concrete exhibits serve as an excellent source of tactile information to blind and deafblind people who have no other access to this unique resource.

The fossil trail is situated in a safe environment wherein blind and deafblind people as well as pupils and tourists can experience the exhibits at their own pace with trained guides. The fossil trail is an important concrete learning environment. Most of the fossils in this exhibition were donated by Dr Eddie van Dijk.
