Splash and Dig

July 1

Great for beginners of all ages, the Mygatt-Moore half day expeditions offer paleontology field work 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. After lunch at the museum and a behind the scenes tour of the paleo lab, we will head to the Imondi Aqua Park for an afternoon of fun on the floating inflatable playground on the lake.

Expeditioners should dress for working outdoors in summer: bring a wide-brimmed hat, sturdy shoes or hiking boots, sunscreen, and bug spray. 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: 6

$125 per participant
