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.

Also the opportunity is provided to watch scientists and volunteers excavate and prepare fossil specimens for study and educational exhibits. Admission is FREE!
