Fossil Butte: Visit a 52 Million-Year-Old Fossil Classroom

A fossil adventure awaits your students! Use this park as your classroom and discover the amazing things fossils teach us. As of Fall 2017, we also offer Virtual Field Trips where your class can take a tour of the visitor center and learn all about fossils with a ranger.
