Paleo Camp

Three weeks of summer camp for children ages 5-12.  Only at Paleo Camp can you dig for fossils, get a behind the scenes tour of the fossil site, and make a plaster cast of a fossil!  Additional activities include science experiments, science-based art projects, t-shirt tie-dying, and so much more!

Tuesday, September 25, 4:00-6:00pm – Fossil & Artifact ID Night

You don’t have to be a paleontologist to find fossils. Identifying them is a different story.  Bring any kind of rock, fossil, artifact, or mineral to Fossil & Artifact ID Night, and scientists at the museum will provide space for the study of these finds. There will be an archaeologist, paleontologist, and geologist on site. The event is free and open to the public but does not include admission to exhibits.

More programs coming soon!
