Great for beginners of all ages, the Mygatt-Moore expeditions offer an introduction to paleontology field work. Get a little dirty digging for Jurassic dinosaurs. Our paleontologists will make sure you have all the training and tools you need. Fossil bones of Apatosaurus and 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.
