Our Prehistoric Watershed

View fossils and meet local paleontologists and geologists while participating in hands-on activities to learn about Idaho's past - including erupting volcanoes and casting a fossil dinosaur claw! Paleontologists from the Orma J. Smith Museum will share fossil plants, fishes, beavers and mollusks from the Middle Miocene to Pleistocene epochs. Plus explore Idaho rocks and minerals through a microscope with the Idaho Museum of Mining and Geology!
