Children visiting Hagerman Fossil Beds enjoy seeing the informational DVD at the Visitor Center. While there the Discovery Center is a fun spot to explore. Become a Jr. Ranger and earn a badge. Join us for programs and activities.
Out on the Monument, the family can hike along the Emigrant Trail and pretend they’re one of the many people who walked over 1,300 miles so far on their trek west. Or you can walk along the Oregon Trail and check out the wagon ruts left so many years ago.
Come and have lots of fun!
