Western Center for Archaeology & Paleontology
The Western Center for Archaeology & Paleontology is designed to provide world-class facilities for the research, curation, and presentation of the nearly 1,000,000 specimens discovered during the development of the Diamond Valley Lake in Hemet, California.
Scientists, researchers, students and the general public have an unparalleled opportunity to interact with and to understand the magnificent creatures and resourceful people who inhabited The Diamond and Domenigoni valleys from its distant Ice Age past through today.
An interactive learning/conference center for scholars, researchers, students of all levels and the general public is available. Flexible and innovative meeting areas and appropriate media technology facilitate the sharing of information generated by Western Center research.
