Discovery and curiosity are central to our education mission. Explore "one of the wonders of the natural world" through an in-person tour or with one of our Virtual Field Trips.
Twelve million years ago a supervolcanic eruption in southwest Idaho blanketed northern Nebraska with glassy volcanic ash. This catastrophic event resulted in the death of much of the wildlife. Today the remains of barrel-bodied rhinos, three-toed horses and llama-like camels are still buried in volcanic ash at the Ashfall Fossil Beds. Dozens of perfectly preserved fossil skeletons have been revealed and are on display in the Hubbard Rhino Barn.
