More about Forces of Nature: Telluride’s Prehistoric Journey

What was Telluride like before there were people? Before the ski resort, the mines and even the mountains?  The Telluride Historical Museum’s upcoming annual exhibit, Forces of Nature: Telluride’s Prehistoric Journey, delves into the dramatic and volatile powers that built the region we know today.

Uncover allosaurus fossils from the late Jurassic period and discover what life was like for these fast, muscular carnivores. Dive into the Western Interior Seaway that covered Colorado and extended from the Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic Ocean. Test out the principles of plate tectonics, handle real Colorado fossils, and see how gems and minerals formed through millions of years of volcanic activity and glaciation.

Thank you to the Museum of Western Colorado’s Dinosaur Journey Museum!
