Stonerose Interpretive Center & Eocene Fossil Site Dig
15-1 North Kean, Republic, WA
Stonerose Interpretive Center is located on the corner of Kean Street and Highway 20 W., across from the city park. The fossil site is just a short 2 block walk from the Interpretive Center.
The adventure begins with a brief introduction about fossils and how to hunt for fossils. You can view Stonerose's collections on display to see the possibilities. After orientation, a fossil guide will go with the group up to the dig site, which is 2 blocks away. You will probably want to be at the dig site about an hour but you can stay longer if you want. When you are done digging, you can bring your finds down to the Interpretive Center for identification. Each digger is allowed to keep 3 fossils (unless staff thinks it is of significant scientific value.) There is a nice city park across the street from the Center. You are welcome to enjoy the park with your own picnic lunch before or after your Stonerose visit.
