Throughout the digging of the fourth bore of the Caldecott Tunnel, a large variety of plant and animal fossils have been found with many dating back more than 10 million years.

The Museum of the San Ramon Valley will have some of the fossils on display to go along with a presentation on the construction and history of the Caldecott Tunnel this Wednesday, Oct. 12, beginning at 2:00 p.m, at the Village Theatre, 233 Front St., Danville. The presentation will include a video of the actual construction going on and discussions with some of the key players in the construction of the fourth bore.

Although the event will take you outside of Lamorinda, it may be worth it to get a more in-depth look at what is going on in our own backyard.

Tickets are $15 and will be sold at the door beginning at 1:30 p.m.
