Type of Event
Join paleontologists in a celebration of all things fossil as we participate in National Fossil Day 2022.
Visit the Museum Demonstration Lab at the Painted Desert Visitor Center to see fossil preparation projects and talk to a paleontologist. You can also swing by our fossil activites table to pick up fossil themed colored pages, stickers, and so much more! Be sure to pick up a Junior Paleontologist or Petrified Forest Junior Ranger booklet to complete during your visit to the park.
Can't join in person? Learn about park fossils on our website or watch our YouTube Series on all things paleo at Petrified Forest. We will be releasing a new video on National Fossil Day this year!
