Things To Do
While visiting Hagerman Fossil Beds be sure to spend some time exploring the Visitor Center, located in town on Rt. 30 across from the high school. You can watch our informational DVD, dig like a paleontologist, examine fossil replicas, and marvel at our fossil displays.
You are never too young to be captivated by fossils. Our Ranger led programs allow people of all ages to explore the wonderful world of fossils. Who knows what the benefits will be?
