Do you have an ‘inner archaeologist’? The John Day Fossil Beds National Monument has 3 spectacular locations, the Clarno Unit, Painted Hills Unit, and the Sheep Rock Unit. But the best place to see fossils is the Thomas Condon Paleontology Center, in the Sheep Rock Unit. There are over 500 fossil specimens on display, as well as murals depicting the historic environments these animals would have lived in. Stand in awe in front of the viewing windows looking into the laboratory and collections area, where scientists are actively studying the fossils! There’s also a webcam connected to the lab microscope to look more closely at the fossils being studied.
