You Can Now Dig For Fossils At Stonerose Interpretive Center In Washington
We always sat that there’s something for everyone in Washington — and as it turns out, there’s even something for our aspiring paleontologists. The Stonerose Interpretive Center, which you’ll find in the small Eastern Washington town of Republic, has recently opened back up to the public. And although there are some restrictions put in place due to current conditions, you’re welcome to dig for fossils here once again.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Stonerose is currently open from Wednesday – Sunday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Right now, thanks to a generous grant from Innovia Foundation, they are offering free admission to children from low income families (and no proof is required). Check out their website and plan your dig!
