Rangers will remotely (using Zoom technology) introduce students to Agate Fossil Beds National Monument, and spend time with them describing a large diorama exhibit in the visitor center. This sensational, life-sized exhibit focuses on the sometimes bizarre animals that roamed these prairies 20 million years ago and are known today through their fossils discovered nearby. They will learn about fossilization and the geology of the area.
