Established as a partnership between California State University, Fullerton and the County of Orange, through OC Parks, in 2009, the Cooper Center is committed to the preservation, curation, and management of the fossils and artifacts within the County for the purpose of scientific research, outreach, and education. The artifacts and fossils managed by the Cooper Center have been accumulated over the last four decades from sites in Orange County, California, that have undergone Cultural Resource Management (CRM) studies. The rocks of Orange County contain the fossilized remains of plants and animals from every major time period since the Jurassic - over 180 million years of prehistory! At this point, only a small fraction of the collection has been inventoried - about 20,000 specimens out of an estimated 3,000,000 or more from over 1,000 localities. Notable collections include: Eocene terrestrial mammals; late Oligocene-early Miocene terrestrial mammals; and Miocene-Pliocene marine mammals.
