Student Digs for Fossils

Mountain Oaks student Dallis Donnell was given the opportunity to experience Paleontology at a fossil site at an undisclosed location. Dallis assisted a Paleontologist/Zoologist and a Naturalist in recovering a fossilized tusk from a Gomphothere which was a four-tusked Proboscidean ancestor of the modern elephant. This fossil is thought to be between five and ten million years old, with of course no exact date of fossilization. Due to the vulnerability of the tusk, it took around eight hours to carve out the surrounding rock to be able to wrap the fossil. Click article title to see pictures. Posted 2/5/21

In an effort to afford more time and use of the Library for families, please click on article title to see the new schedule. No appointment is required from 9AM to 3PM on your mentor teacher's assigned days, but families are still required to sign in. ALL safety guidelines are still enforced and we still have a limit of people in the library at one time. If the capacity of the library is exceeded, people will be asked to wait outside. We will be observing a maximum of 90 minutes of time in the library for any one family to ensure equitable use of the library. Posted 9/22/20
