Mygatt-Moore Half Day Dig

August 1 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Great for beginners of all ages, the Mygatt-Moore half-day expeditions offer paleontology field work without the heat of the day. Enjoy digging for dinosaur bones, teeth, and plants in the cool of a summer morning. 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. Water and Gatorade will be provided on site.

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 some shade tarps.

Minimum age: 5 (Guests ages 16 or under must be accompanied by a paying adult participant.)
