Fossil Day!

Mary Thompson (Senior Collections Manager), Alex Pacioretty (museum intern), Andrew Haddock (museum intern), and Ashley Ferguson (BLM intern) spent a day with Henry’s Fork Elementary’s 4th grade class in St. Anthony, Idaho.






The 4th graders (approximately 200 students) were exploring fossils from Owyhee County. These fossils come from cave sediments collected from Bureau of Land Management (BLM) sites. The students got the chance to discovery bones in the sediment, including: rodents, snakes, lizards, and birds.
