Current Temporary History Exhibit:

North Coast Fossil Exhibit


In this exhibit, you’ll get the opportunity to learn about the different types of fossils that have been found along the Oregon coast including the Cannon Beach area. You’ll also get the chance to learn about the Astoria Formation, which is a geological formation that stretches along the Oregon and Washington coasts.
This exhibit is curated by KITT Garcia, who is an aspiring Museum Curator and Paleontologist. This exhibit is a Pacifica Project for his senior year of High School. KITT has been fascinated with the world of Paleontology since he was young. Growing up, he tried to consume as much paleo media as he could. BBC’s “The Ballad of Big Al” was one of his early favorites. Now he is attempting to make greater strides toward his future in the Paleontology Community.
The Cannon Beach History Center & Museum is excited to host this exhibit in support of KITT Garcia’s Pacifica Project; a project that is based on the ideas of citizenship, service, and commitment to the community, and was designed to allow students to complete a project that utilizes their own skills and interests as they serve their community. This exhibit will be on display May 20 through August 15, 2023.
