A Geological and Paleontological look at New Zealand

Most people do not think about climate change on a geological scale. The Stones and Bones exhibit is meant to show visitors that the rocks and fossils beneath our feet tell a story. We can learn about paleoclimates and see how vastly different our surroundings used to be. The project shows rock core columns and a panel engaging humans with their geological history of rocks and fossils, with particular emphasis on the Otago region.
