John Day Fossil Beds Webcams

The rugged and remote landscape of John Day Fossil Beds National Monument is fascinating and awe-inspiring. As you admire the colorful layers of volcanic clay on the Sheep Rock Cam, imagine what ancient wonders lay hidden there, encased in a tomb of hardened ash for millions of years.

Fortunately, you don't have to rely entirely on your imagination! Our Paleo Lab Cam gives you a backstage glimpse of real scientists at work. You'll be able to watch, in real time, as our paleontologists meticulously prepare fossils for study and public display.
