Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument

Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument

Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument is closed for the safety of visitors and park resources. There will be no NPS-provided visitor services at Florissant Fossil Beds, including public information, restrooms, trash collection, and facilities and park road maintenance such as plowing. Because of the federal government shutdown, NPS social media and websites are not being monitored or updated and may not reflect current conditions. During a federal government shutdown, all park programs will be canceled.

One of Central Colorado's richest and most diverse fossil beds lie beneath a grassy mountain. Here there are thousands of detail fossils of plants, insects, fish and more, each has a story to tell. 14-foot wide petrified redwood tree stumps never cease to amaze.
