Badlands National Park
Badlands National Park in South Dakota protects bizarrely eroded sedimentary rock formations, which contain some of the best preserved mammal fossils in the world. Fossils erode out of the rocks, providing evidence of prehistoric life that inhabited the "prairie past." Today, "future fossils" such as bison, pronghorn, and deer graze upon the "prairie present."
Geologic Time Scale
Time—We seem to organize our lives around it. However, do you really know what time is? Geologists start counting “geologic time” from when Earth formed.

Expected to be completed Summer 2007.
