Even if you have only a passing interest in history and geology you will find much to enjoy at the Stonerose Interpretive Center and its nearby fossil site. You will find the Interpretive Center in the small town of Republic, just outside Spokane, WA where a huge fossil field was uncovered in the 1970s and forms the basis of the attraction that you will be pleased you sought out during your trip to the area.
A visit to the Stonerose Interpretive Center is an amazing experience the whole family can enjoy on your visit to the Pacific Northwest. A wide range of fossils dating back 50 million years can be discovered at the site and identified at the Interpretive Center on site. Every member of the family will enjoy setting out to take part in this geological dig that experts believe will uncover more than 48 million fossils by the time it is complete, including now extinct insects, flowers, and much more. During your visit you will be given information about how to go about digging for fossils on the site that was discovered in the 1970s and is still abundant with fossils. Visitors work with experts at Stonerose to determine what they uncover during their dig at the site and you will have the chance to take home up to three fossils each day you take part in the dig.
The Stonerose Interpretive Center gives you the chance to take part in uncovering a little bit of the history of the Republic area of Washington State from a time when the nearby small town was covered by a prehistoric lake.
