Museum & Buildings
Trails and Grounds open daily sunrise to sunset.
The trails and museum will be closed June 6 – 8 for private events. The North Forest Trail will remain open to the public at these times.
Uncover the history and mystery of prehistoric Arkansas! Learn about the creatures and ecosystems that have shaped this area, from dinosaurs to ice ages and everything in between. We’ll be joined by Laurel Lamb from the University of Arkansas Museum to guide us through our explorations. Then, it’s time to get hands-on and be a paleontologist for the day with our all-ages craft activities. We’ll be creating casts of fossils and finding discoveries 65 million years in the making!
