UL Lafayette students and faculty members uncovered 7-million-year-old camel bones at Fossil Lake south-central Oregon.

The beast was 14 feet tall and resembled a modern-day giraffe. The group unearthed more bones of a single camel than have been found anywhere in the United States.




Anyone who’s curious about what life was like thousands to millions of years ago can get a glimpse of the past at the Lafayette Science Museum.

Some UL Lafayette geology students clean, examine and catalog fossils for research and display there.




Attendance at the Lafayette Science Museum more than doubled when University-owned fossils, minerals and gemstones went on display.

Thousands of items – collected over about 50 years – were moved there as part of an arrangement that benefits the museum, the University and the public.
