Junior Paelontologist day with dr. bonde

Join Museum Paleontologist Josh Bonde at the NEW Tule Springs State Park. We will meet at the Shadow Ridge High School Parking Lot. This will be a pedestrian tour, so pack plenty of water and a snack. We will be hiking a few miles round trip (depending on group interest). We will overview the the interesting geology of the area and then visit some historical dig sites from the 1960's where Radiocarbon dating came of age. We will also see some fossils on the ground. It is important to note that collecting fossils on State or Federal Land is illegal without a permit from the relevant land management agency. Come for a hike, learn about our past, and maybe find a treasure for our future.
