In March 2016, while constructing a bike pathway next to SR-15 between the neighborhoods of Normal Heights and Kensington, surveyors found fossilized whale bones and shells.
What questions do you have about this discovery? For example:
- How did remains of marine life end up on dry land?
- What does this finding tell us about this area over thousands or millions of years?
- What can this evidence tell us about Earth's processes over time?
