San Joaquin Valley Paleontology Museum

San Joaquin Valley Paleontology Museum

Just off Highway 99 in Fairmead (near Chowchilla) is one of most significant fossil beds discovered from the Pleistocene period. In addition to mammoths, fossils have been found from saber tooth cats, giant ground sloths, camels, horses and rare pronghorned antelopes, as well as smaller animals. Through analysis of the fossil materials the site presents a unique picture of the entire Central Valley ecosystem a million years ago.
