Rabbit Valley Dinosaur: This intermediate-level expedition was designed for the avid dinosaur-lover. Get a full dose of paleontology on the Western Slope as we visit historic dinosaur quarries and learn about the regional geology and history of paleontology in our area. Then spend three days digging for dinosaurs in the real “Jurassic Park” at the Mygatt-Moore Quarry. Hone your skills excavating delicate fossils, while learning how to protect a highly visible fossil site from poachers. Bring your hiking shoes, a water bottle, wide-brimmed hat, sunscreen, and bug spray. Lunch is included each day.

Traildust Theropods: This expedition is for adventurers who like a challenge. Fossil bones of the theropod Allosaurus are plentiful at the site, but they are embedded in a hard sandstone. Break out the hammers and chisels to excavate these bones from one of the Jurassic’s top predators. Bring sturdy hiking shoes, a water bottle, wide-brimmed hat, sunscreen, and bug spray. Lunch is included each day.
