There’s More than Meets the Eye

On Sunday, August 31, 2014, be ready to see Clark Park through the eyes of a Park Ranger as they lead you on a moderate 3/4 mile (30 minute) hike as you look for clues and find out where all  the animals are.

 Start by visiting with the Ranger at the Share and Show exhibit at Clark Park’s Fossil Museum (Los Coyotes Paleontology Museum) front patio for some history, find out what animals lived in the park 10,000 years ago, the animals that rule the park today and find out some of the secrets of the Clark Park. There will be fun actives for both adults and children alike.

A variety of recreational activities are available at Ralph B. Clark Park. These include large shaded picnic areas, hiking and biking trails, and children’s playground areas. Children of all ages can enjoy fishing in the stocked three acre lake. Four tennis courts are located within the park and the amphitheater which overlooks the lake.

 

The Interpretive Center, which opened in September of 1988, contains a paleontology museum that provides an educational view of prehistoric Orange County through exhibits, programs and guided tours. Also the opportunity is provided to watch scientists and volunteers excavate and prepare fossil specimens for study and educational exhibits.
