America has been blessed as a land rich in fossils. Fossils that tell the story of the animals, plants and ecosystems that set the stage for the world we live in today. America’s great natural history museums display many of the great treasures from the country’s ancient paleontological past. Fossil fish, giant mammals, invertebrates, plants, and of course, everybody’s favorite: dinosaurs. The National Park Service has taken great care in preserving some of the nations most important precious fossil resources. Indeed, two fossil rich resources stand out in the National Park System, monuments that take you up close and personal with fossils still in the earth: Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument and Dinosaur National Monument.
