Finding and digging up fossils is the first step of the paleontological process. The Dinosaur Dig holds over 60 identified dig sites in a 500-acre area.
Most of the fossil-bearing sediments are part of the Morrison Formation from the Late Jurassic—over 140 million years old! These hold many of the most famous dinosaurs: Allosaurus, Apatosaurus (also known as Brontosaurus), Camarasaurus, Diplodocus, and Stegosaurus. Fossils are also found in the even older Sundance Formation, which was deposited when a vast sea covered the North American interior. Here one can find fossil shells, squid “pencaps”, and occasionally bones from marine reptiles.
Dig for a Day with scientists and document dinosaur fossils. Participants will meet in the morning for a brief orientation, then climb aboard a tour bus for the short trip to the dig site. The day’s activities will include fossil stabilization and excavation, quarry mapping, and documentation. A sack lunch will be provided, as will all the materials needed. There is a van which can take you back to town should the children get tired or too hot. The experienced staff will be on-hand to answer questions and provide assistance.
