In cooperation with the Tualatin Historical Society, North American Research Group (NARG) presents Fossil Fest. Please join us at the Tualatin Heritage Center and have a look into the past.   NARG is sponsoring a free event for families to learn about fossils, fossil collecting, preparation, and identification. There will be informative displays, demonstrations, lectures, and educational activities for children.  

Fossil experts are scheduled to speak on recent fossil discoveries and how contributions by NARG has impacted the scientific understanding of the ancient Pacific Northwest.  Kids can screen for shark teeth and participate in a fossil hunt.  Everyone can  learn to use the same preparation tools and techniques used by professionals to make fossils look cool.  

There will be games and educational activities.  All kids will go home with free fossils.  PLUS you can bring in your fossils for identification.
