2018 Prehistoric OC

Join OC Parks at Ralph B. Clark Regional Park Saturday, October 13 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. for Prehistoric OC, a free event that invites families to explore the prehistoric history of Orange County.

Prehistoric OC will present fun and educational activities and information to the public about Orange County’s rich history, prehistory, and Native American culture with activities, fossils, and artifacts. This annual event welcomes the young and the young at heart, and will foster a sense of pride and respect for local natural and cultural resources.

Families can enjoy hands on activities, watch volcano demonstrations by the Geology Department from California State University Fullerton, examine fossils and artifacts, learn about Native American culture, and check out the Junior Scientist camp for educational crafts. Refreshments will be available for purchase from Wiki Wiki Shave Ice.

“Orange County has a rich, ancient history, with many fossils and artifacts found locally,” Orange County Supervisor Shawn Nelson, Fourth District, said. “Prehistoric OC provides a great opportunity for children and adults to learn about and experience our county’s past.”

Prehistoric OC coincides with California Archaeology Month, the American Institute for Archaeology’s National Archaeology Day Oct. 20, and The National Park Services’ National Fossil Day Oct. 17.

The County of Orange manages over six million fossils and artifacts collected over the past four decades of development within Orange County including 180 million years’ worth of fossils, and human artifacts dating back nearly 12,000 years.

Join us to celebrate the scientific and cultural heritage of Orange County at Ralph B. Clark Regional Park this October.
