Auflistung von National Parks, Museen & Sammlungen von Jim Mills aus Kalifornien:


Holbrook, Arizona -- PETRIFIED FOREST NATIONAL PARK P.O. Box 2217, Petrified forest National Park, AZ 86028; telephone (928)524-6228. Fee charged for entry. Summer and winter hours differ. Check their website for current information: While there is not much in the way of polished petrified wood in the museum at Rainbow Forest or at the Park Headquarters Visitor Center, this is the place to see the beautiful logs lying on the ground in their natural condition. It is, of course, simply spectacular and the incredible views are one of the reasons that Theodore Roosevelt named the Petrified Forest as the very first National Monument under the newly enacted Antiquities Act early in the 1900s. A contributing factor was that people were hauling off some of the big logs and dynamiting others to see if they contained amethyst crystals (hardly any of them do).


Bakersfield, California -- BUENA VISTA MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY 2018 Chester Avenue, Bakersfield, CA 93301; telephone (661)324-6350. Small fee charged for entry. Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10:00am to 5:00pm. See their website for updates on their schedule of events: This local museum has a very nice collection of petrified wood specimens with an emphasis on local Kern County, CA specimens (perhaps most renown for the palm root material from nearby Edison, CA). The BV Museum has a great deal of participation by members of the Kern County Gem and Mineral Society, an organization long known to have a LOT of petrified wood collectors, several of whom generously have contributed specimens to the BV Museum. In fact, if you are planning a trip to Bakersfield or vicinity, try to make it in the springtime to coincide with the Kern County Gem and Mineral club’s annual show which always features spectacular displays of petrified wood. You can then take in both the club show and the BV Museum (and perhaps get in some local collecting as well!)

Calistoga, California -- THE PETRIFIED FOREST 4100 Petrified Forest Road, Calistoga, CA 94515; telephone (707)942-6667. Fee charged for entry. Open daily. Their website has directions and photos of the wood: This petrified forest was developed as a roadside attraction almost a century ago. There are some very long logs, around which, the dirt has been excavated so that you can get an idea of the tremendous size. Logs are named with cutesy names like Monarch, Giant, etc. but the area is still tremendously interesting despite the “roadside attraction” character. It is definitely worth a visit.

Riverside, California -- THE WORLD MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY (on the campus of La Sierra University) 4700 Pierce Street, Riverside CA 92515; telephone (909)785-2101. Open on Saturdays from 2:00 to 5:00pm. No fee charged for entry. Check their website for current information and directions: This is a small museum with a lot of petrified wood. Great collection of petrified Protoyucca (early Joshua Tree) is on permanent display along with some great specimens from mostly Western US localities.


Florissant, Colorado -- FLORISSANT FOSSIL BEDS NATIONAL MONUMENT 15807 Teller County 1, Florissant, CO 80816; telephone (719)748-3253. Open all year. Winter and summer hours are different. Fee charged for entry. Check their website for current information: This National Park area is equally famous for its fossil insects as it is for the in-situ trunks of enormous sized Sequoia trees. They are really impressive to see in person. The museum concentrates more on the fossil insects than it does on the fossil plants but it is still a nicely done little museum. These are likely the largest diameter petrified trees that exist anywhere in the world. Be sure to take the park trail to see all the stumps, not just the ones adjacent to the visitor center.


New Haven, Connecticut -- YALE UNIVERSITY PEABODY MUSEUM 170 Whitney Avenue, New Haven, Connecticut 06520; telephone (203)432-4771. Fee charged for entry. Open hours are M-S 10:00am to 5:00pm and Sunday noon to 5:00pm. See this website for information: The Peabody established a new permanent exhibit entitled “Rainbows in Stone” in the Autumn of 2003. I have not visited recently but it appears from the website page that it consists primarily of Chinle Formation (like the Petrified Forest National Park) specimens. It also looks like they may be spectacular (in the typical tradition of the Peabody!)


Flora, Mississippi -- MISSISSIPPI PETRIFIED FOREST 124 Forest Park Road, Flora, MS 39071; telephone (601)879-8189. Open year around. Fee charged for entry. Summer and winter hours differ. See their website for details: A very nicely done trail through an ancient forest now petrified. There is also a small museum in the visitor center with a wide variety of petrified wood specimens from other localities throughout the world. Privately owned. The staff also manages a campground on the site.


Ogallala, Nebraska -- PETRIFIED WOOD GALLERY 525 East First Street, Ogallala NE 69153; telephone (308)284-9996. Spring, summer and fall hours vary. Generally closed in winter except by appointment. Small entry fee. Check their website for current information: This is a museum of the lifelong collection of twin brothers Harvey and Howard Kenfield. It is housed in a small but very nicely done museum in downtown Ogallala. The twins have a very good eye for aesthetics and have amassed a fine collection of which they are justly proud. It is definitely worth a detour if you are anywhere in the vicinity of Western Nebraska.


Las Cruces, New Mexico -- ZUHL LIBRARY (on the campus of University of New Mexico at Las Cruces) University Library, Univ. of New Mexico, Box 30006 Dept 3475, Las Cruces, NM 88003: telephone (505)646-5792. Hours vary with school year - check before visiting. No fee charged for entry. A small sample of the wonderful collection can be seen on the following websites: This is a university library which also houses a fabulous collection of large slabs and logs of petrified wood which are artfully placed around the three floors of library shelves and sitting areas. These are some of the best large (24 inch plus) slices of petrified wood to be seen anywhere. While on the campus check out the university visitor center which also houses an extensive display of petrified wood. All of this material has been donated by Herb Zuhl, founder of Russell-Zuhl Galleries in New York City. He has a real eye for aesthetics in petrified wood and he likes BIG pieces. Don’t miss it.


Ithaca, New York -- THE MUSEUM OF THE EARTH (at the Paleontological Research Institution) 1259 Trumansburg road, Route 96, Ithaca, NY 14850; telephone (607)273-6623. Open every day in summer and closed one day weekly in Winter. Fee charged for entry. Check their award winning website for current information and directions on how to get there: This museum has an extensive collection of petrified wood and other paleobotanical specimens (in addition to extensive collections of all kinds of other fossils as well.) Petrified wood is generally not represented extensively in the permanent exhibit, but special exhibits featuring petrified wood are planned.


North Dakota -- THEODORE ROOSEVELT NATIONAL PARK (in the North Dakota Badlands) Box 7 Medora, ND 58645; telephone (701)623-4466. Fee charged for entry. The park is open all year. See their website for current information: The badlands have substantial deposits of petrified wood and the park visitor center can provide information on the best trails to take for viewing them.


Central Point, Oregon -- CRATER ROCK MUSEUM (owned and operated by the Roxy Ann Gem and Mineral Society) 2002 Scenic Ave, Central Point, OR 97502; (541)664-6081. Open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10:00am to 4:00pm. No fee charged for entry. Special events are announced on their website: Every rock club should have a museum like this! Loads of petrified wood on permanent display and it is really top quality. I never go through this part of Oregon without planning a stop at the Crater Rock Museum. They are about to undergo expansion with the addition of a major mineral collection. In addition to petrified wood, they have one of the finest displays in the world of Fairfield (Clay County, Utah) variscite.

Hillsboro, Oregon -- RICE NORTHWEST MUSEUM OF ROCKS AND MINERALS 26385NW Groveland Drive, Hillsboro, OR 97124; telephone(503)647-2418. Open Wednesday through Sunday from 1:00 to 5:00pm. Fee charged for entry. Check their website for current updates: This is one of the bigger permanent displays of petrified wood from worldwide localities that can be visited. It is worth a special trip! In addition to an extensive collection of petrified wood on display, there are also mineral specimens (including Northwest USA gold) that are spectacular.

Kimberley, Oregon -- JOHN DAY FOSSIL BEDS NATIONAL MONUMENT 32651 Highway 19, Kimberley, OR; telephone (541)987-2333. Open all year (visitor centers closed on some holidays). No entrance fee at present. Check their website for updated information: There are three separate units in this National Monument. The main visitor center at Sheep Rock Unit has a nice assemblage of nuts out of the Clarno Formation along with good interpretive geology about the entire park (encompassing the Clarno, John Day, Mascall and Rattlesnake Formations). The Painted Hills Unit contains the site of the famous Bridge Creek Flora and the Clarno Unit has interesting logs preserved in volcanic ash lahars. It is unlikely that you will encounter park staff when you are out looking so be sure to stop by the Visitor Center first to obtain background in the area geology and the importance of the plant fossils that were discovered in the area.

Redmond, Oregon -- PETERSON ROCK GARDENS 7930 S.W. 77th Street, Redmond, OR 97756; telephone (541)382-5574. Open 365 days per year but hours vary between winter and summer and also vary for indoor museum and outdoor exhibit. Donation at the gate is requested. I don’t know if the attraction maintains its own website but more information and some photos can be accessed through the following: This is not so much a petrified wood museum as it is a lifelong effort at folk art by Rasmus Peterson who constructed the rockery on his farm between 1935 and 1952. Petrified wood is just one of many native Oregon rock materials used but there is quite a bit of it! The farm is still owned by Mr. Peterson’s descendents. Quite campy but a lot of fun for the petrified wood enthusiast.


Lemmon, South Dakota -- PETRIFIED WOOD PARK AND MUSEUM 500 Main Avenue, Lemmon, SD 57638; telephone (605)374-5716. No fee charged for admission to either the park or the museum. The park is open year around and the Museum is open in the summer (mid-May to mid-September) only. See their website for information and photographs of the park: This is more of a fascinating story about folk art and human compassion than it is about geology (although there is a lot of petrified wood in the park and museum to be seen!). The park was developed during the Great Depression as a personal effort by one man to provide work to the local unemployed population. The story of Mr. O.S. Quammen is well told on the website. I have not visited this locality but certainly will go out of my way to do so the next time I am in the Dakotas!

Piedmont, South Dakota -- PETRIFIED FOREST OF THE BLACK HILLS 8228 Elk Creek Road Piedmont, SD 57769; telephone (605)787-4560. There is very sparse information on their website: But more detail on the following one: I have not visited this locality but the web site says it was opened as a roadside attraction in 1929 (must have been an interesting way to start the Great Depression!)


Houston, Texas -- HOUSTON MUSEUM OF NATURAL SCIENCE one Herman Circle Drive, Houston, TX 77030; telephone (713)639-4629. Open seven days a week. Fee charged for entry. See their website for current hours and special exhibits: This major institution has none to little petrified wood on permanent display but the Houston Museum owns a fabulous collection of large slabs donated by Herb Zuhl (see Las Cruces, NM entry above for more on Mr. Zuhl’s collection) and displays a portion of it every couple of years as a special exhibit. Meanwhile, one can browse the collection on a CD sold by the Houston Gem and Mineral Society as “Publication No. 8, The Zuhl collection of American Petrified Wood at the Houston Museum of Natural Science." This CD, featuring 500 images of 208 identified pieces of petrified wood, can be purchased by visiting their website at


Escalante, Utah -- ESCALANTE STATE PARK (at the Escalante Petrified Forest) 710 North Reservoir Road, Escalante, UT 84726; telephone (435)826-4466. Entry fee. Open daily (park has an overnight campground). See their website for current information: This is one of the classic rock hounding localities that provided tons of lapidary and specimen-quality material before being added to the Utah State Park system. Collecting is no longer allowed but the place is still worth a long visit for the petrified wood enthusiast. Only a small museum here but the real sights to be seen are on the park trails. There is a three-quarter mile loop “Trail of Sleeping Rainbows” which is accessed off of the one mile “Petrified Forest Trail." In fact, the Sleeping Rainbows Trails is the heart of the petrified wood deposits and contains thousands of large logs weighing millions of tons. The trail is a bit steep but definitely worthwhile. We found the park staff to be exceptionally friendly and helpful.


Vantage, Washington -- GINKGO PETRIFIED FOREST STATE PARK located just north of I-90 at Vantage. Telephone (509)856-2700. Entry fee or annual parks pass required. Open every day in summer but weekends and holidays only in winter. See website for summer or winter season dates and hours: In addition to the hikes to see big petrified logs still in the ground, there is a nice little museum with a display of petrified wood typical of the area. The park was named because a small quantity of Ginkgo petrified wood was found, not because there is a lot of Ginkgo wood there. The genus is VERY RARE in the petrified wood record (although it is quite common as leaf imprints in sedimentary strata).

hallo an alle,
Um das mal ein bisschen aufzufrischen, stell ich im nächsten Beitrag eine (extrem rudimentäre) Linkliste ein. Manche links davon sind aber sicher schon in anderen Beiträgen vorhanden.
Allgemein – Aufruf an alle PalBot-Freaks:
Da viele der in den älteren Beiträgen angegebenen Links nicht mehr aktuell sind (wo`s leicht ging hab ich die tlw. durch die aktuellen ersetzt, sonst z.T. gelöscht),
bitte ich euch, hier ab und zu eure aktuellen (überprüften !) links einzutragen, am besten mit kurzem Kommentar.
Ich werde dann von Zeit zu Zeit gegebenenfalls die einzelnen Beiträge zu aktuellen Listen zusammenfassen – klarerweise nur bei entsprechender Beteiligung.

erbitte durchaus auch Anregungen, Kritik, Vorschläge zur Gliederung der Listen etc. !
