Below B.C.’s Visit to the Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin

Yesterday, Allegra and Jacob from the non profit organization Below BC came in to digitize some of our fossil/rock collection! It was a really cool experience watching them work with our collection and to learn about their project. Make sure you go check out their website to learn more about their project.
