The Fossil Discovery Center, Madera County offers you and your students a unique opportunity – tour the landfill that is also a fossil dig. With the fall 2010 opening of the EDUCATION CENTER, the San Joaquin Valley Paleontology Foundation provides ways for local community, especially our youth, to have a hands-on experience of the excitement of scientific discovery. We organize tours, classroom presentations and exhibits and soon to be offered mock digs. With our on-site Paleontologist, we provide opportunities for volunteers to help dig fossils, prep exhibits AND help teachers use fossils to make science exciting!
