Join us with a visit to the Dinosaur Mesa, Critter Corner, and the Earth Science Museum at Jurupa Mountains! Begin your expedition in our rock corral with a short presentation about the ways rocks can form and the importance of rocks and minerals as a natural resource. Explorers also meet some fossils up close. At the end of the presentation, Explorers take a short hike up to Dinosaur Mesa learning about a variety of dinosaurs along the way. Once Explorers reach Dino Mesa, each person is given an egg carton to collect twelve rock, mineral or fossil specimens to take home.
Families will also visit the Earth Science Museum – Our museum houses specimens of rocks, minerals and fossils from around the world.
Lastly, we will be introduced to rosy boas, a corn snake, a bearded dragon, Chinese water dragons, a tarantula, and a scorpion amongst other critters at critter corner. Learn about habitats, lifestyles, and feeding habits.
Bring a sack lunch to enjoy on the property! Babies do not need a ticket.
