The Desert Laboratory's Vertebrate Paleontology Collection houses over 20,000 fossils, many of them from right here in the Sonoran Desert. The collection focuses on a time period when humans coexisted with now-extinct megafaunas like mammoths and mastodons. Today the collection is in great shape, but that wasn't always the case. Meet the people whose passion for fossils helped restore the collection to glory.
