Mygatt-Moore Quarry One Day Dig

July 17

| $140

Be a paleontologist for a day at the Mygatt-Moore Quarry. Get a little dirty digging for dinosaur bones, teeth, and plants. Our paleontologists will make sure you have all the training and tools you need. Fossil bones of the giant Apatosaurus and the flesh-eating theropod, Allosaurus, are common in the quarry. This trip ends with a guided tour of the Paleo Lab at Dinosaur Journey. Expeditioners should dress for working outdoors in summer: bring a wide-brimmed hat, sturdy shoes or hiking boots, sunscreen, and bug spray (biting gnats are common, unwanted visitors in late May and early June).

Minimum age: 5 – Ages 16 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult

For kids under 12 – Buy one full price ticket, get one kid’s ticket for discount price of $90! Call 970.242.0971, ext. 2212 for this discount. Not available online.
