Inside the QVC Part II

Many of you may have visited the Quarry Visitor Center at one time, Here are a few last photos of the building before it is reconstructed.

First is an overview of the face of the Carnegie Quarry. Protection of the quarry and its fossils during construction is a major issue. Some very creative ideas have come forth, more on that later.

The large 4 ton crane hoist used during excavations will be dismantled and removed from the building.

The paleo lab, now stripped of its collections and equipment.

Finally, two views of the empty exhibit halls. The rebuilt Quarry Visitor Center will include totally new exhibits, including many interesting vertebrate, invertebrate, and plant fossils not exhibited previously.
