Minumum Age: 5

(guests ages 16 or under must be accompanied by a paying adult)

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. 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. Water and Gatorade will be provided on site.
