Big Bend Fossil Discovery Center

Nature / Visitor Center

Big Bend National Park, TX

A paleontologist’s paradise on the Rio Grande.

Few North American sites hold a fossil record as complete as Big Bend’s—from the Age of Dinosaurs to the Age of Mammals.

EDX, with Lake Flato Architects and the Big Bend Conservancy, created the Fossil Discovery Exhibit—an off-the-grid, solar-powered interpretive center showcasing the fossils of Big Bend. The open air pavilion chronicles 100 million years of geological change. 

This exhibit won a 2018 AAM Excellence in Exhibition award.
