Visitor Center 2013
After four decades, Florissant Fossil Beds will build its first permanent visitor facility. The new, energy-efficient, sustainably designed building will include large fossil displays and interactive exhibits, a research lab and storage facility, and a bookstore. It is expected to be open in the summer of 2013.
