Mygatt-Moore Quarry & DJ Prep Lab

July 12 @ 8:00 am - July 13 @ 3:00 pm

Get a double helping of paleontology by coupling a dig at Mygatt-Moore Quarry with working in the paleo lab, learning the skills to prepare fossils. Participants will spend a full day in the Dinosaur Journey Fossil Preparation Lab before heading out to Mygatt-Moore Quarry to excavate dinosaur bones. Our expert paleontologists will be there to guide you every step of the way. This is a perfect match for enthusiasts and future paleontologists alike.

No hiking is required on this expedition, but participants should expect to be outside, in the heat and bugs, working on open, rocky ground. We will provide shade tarps.

Minimum age: 12 (Guests ages 16 or under must be accompanied by a paying adult participant.)


This is a BOGO dig. Buy one adult ticket for $215, get one child ticket for $150. These are available only by phone. Please call 970.242.0971, ext. 2206 to reserve.
