The Clark Interpretive Center, which opened in September of 1988, contains a paleontology museum that provides an educational view of prehistoric Orange County through exhibits, programs and guided tours. Among the fossils on display is a 9 million year old baleen whale skeleton --it is reputed to be one of the only complete ice age whale fossils in existence. Also the opportunity is provided to watch scientists and volunteers excavate and prepare fossil specimens for study and educational exhibits. Admission is FREE!

The museum is located inside the Ralph B. Clark Regional Park. The park offers large shaded picnic areas, hiking and biking trails, and children's playground areas.
