National Fossil Day is in October and this year the nature center decided to celebrate with the rest of the nation by hosting our first Fossil Day. In partnership with UCR’s Department of Earth Sciences and several paleontologists in Riverside, the nature center threw a fun day full of fossils! Visitors were invited to chat with paleontologists, participate in staged fossil digs, take a guided hike, paint plaster fossils, and even got to take some real fossils home with them!
The nature center was thrilled to welcome visitors to this fun event and is already planning next year’s event. Thank you to everyone who participated in the day to make it successful and memorable!
