Fossil leaf in sand stone.
Members Weekend has been cancelled due to a spike in Covid19 cases in Ferry County. We apologize and hope you will come see us when we open later this season. Our opening dates have yet to be determined and will be based on metrics provided by Ferry County and the State of Washington. While we are sad to miss this event again this year due to the pandemic, we must put the health and safety of our community, our members, staff and volunteers above all else and exercise extreme caution. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We are open temporarily in our new location, right in the center of Republic.  The address is 15 N. Clark.

We are open by appointment Tuesday through Saturday, for Fossil Browsing and Gift Sales from 9-5 until further notice.

Our employees will be wearing masks and social distancing as required by state regulations.  WE WILL REQUIRE ALL VISITORS TO ALSO WEAR A MASK* WHILE THEY ARE IN THE CENTER and to maintain 6 foot social distancing as much as possible. Please respect others while at the fossil site. 

     If you feel you may be carrying the virus, been exposed, or are feeling sick, please postpone your visit for everyone’s benefit. We simply cannot afford to take a chance with the health of our dedicated staff and visitors.

     We recommend that you continue to wear personal protective equipment after you leave the Center to go dig for fossils. We hope that everyone will be considerate of other diggers at the fossil site and give each other space.

Thanks to Humanities Washington, Innovia Foundation, Washington State Library, and Ferry County Sunrise for providing rapid response funding to organizations facing financial hardship! Their grants helped us purchase supplies necessary to meet CDC  guidelines for safety, allowed us to hire back seasonal staff, and even allowed us to let low income youth dig for free.
