Graphic for Pleistocene Palooza at Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument

Stop by our booth at the Pleistocene Palooza, where we will have great activities for the kids representing the flora and fauna seen inside the Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument. We hope to see you there!

Pleistocene Palooza is an annual, interactive outdoor event for fossil enthusiasts of all ages, featuring live animals and a junior paleontologist program. Visitors can catch a glimpse of Ice Age Las Vegas–Pleistocene fossils will come alive as visitors meet representative animals that live today. National Park Service staff, volunteers, and partners showcase the science behind the scenes that helps us understand past life and environments and how they relate to today. This event is in celebration of National Fossil Day, an annual celebration held in October to highlight the scientific and educational value of paleontology and the importance of preserving fossils for future generations.

The event will be held in the parking area at N. Durango Drive & W. Moccasin Rd. Visitor parking will be available on the northeast side of the intersection.
