Five 22-year old exhibits were updated in October 2013 and featured at our 40th anniversary event.  Content was revised by monument staff with attention to professional look and quality.  The update corrected several scientific inaccuracies, added 54 fossils to the exhibits and introduced interpretive themes that were previously lacking including fry and fingerlings, traces fossils and predator-prey, to name a few.
