John Day Fossil Beds National Monument is on Facebook. Keep up to date with what we're doing and share your experience in the fossil beds. We'll ask a thought provoking question, answer your questions about visiting or our fossils (our paleontologists regularly check the page and are happy to answer your questions!), post photos and videos, and let you know what we're up to at the monument.

Are you looking for a picture of the fossil beds for your publication, school project, powerpoint presentation, or next viral video? Go to our flickr site and download public domain pictures for free. Please, however, credit the appropriate photographer and the National Park Service. We'll keep adding images, and please feel free to leave comments there as well.

Check out our YouTube channel for videos and podcasts about the fossil beds, the science of paleontology, and extraordinary views from the monument.
