Eocene Shoreline Living Exhibit
Grand Valley Zoological Quest and Dinosaur Journey Museum presents a collaborative effort – the future Eocene Shoreline Living Exhibit.
The Eocene Shoreline Living Exhibit will link the fossils from our area during the Eocene Epoch to living mixed species today. Fossils of animals past will be displayed alongside living animals such as: spotted sting rays, garfish, perch, turtles, and crayfish. Terrestrial animals will include shore birds such as the American Coot, American Purple Gallinule, and a sloth.
The exhibit will be 20ft in length, 9 feet deep, and multiple educational opportunities will be available to guest. Grand Valley Zoological Quest (GVZQ) plans on seeking accreditation from the Association for Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) making Dinosaur Journey one of 14 (13 currently) museums nationally that hold accreditation from both the AZA and AAM. GVZQ will maintain the living exhibit providing feeding times and educational opportunities for visiting guests.
