Mygatt-Moore Quarry One Day Dig

June 9

| $140

Be a paleontologist for a day and dig at the Mygatt-Moore Quarry.

Get a little dirty and dig for dinosaur bones, teeth, and plants. Fossil bones of the giant Apatosaurus and the flesh-eating theropod, Allosaurus, are common in the quarry. Don’t worry about your experience because our paleontologists will make sure you have all the training and tools you need. This trip ends with a guided tour of the Paleo Lab at Dinosaur Journey. Expeditioners should dress for working outdoors in summer therefore it is recommended to 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
