The County of Orange’s collection at the John D. Cooper Center currently contains over six million artifacts and fossils, and is growing every year as new finds are donated. As stewards of the collection, OC Parks 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 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.
