Medora Public Fossil Dig (Full Days)

June 18 @ 7:30 am - June 28 @ 5:00 pm

This dig is co-sponsored by the North Dakota Geological Survey and the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation. After dinosaurs went extinct, crocodiles became the dominant predator in North Dakota, and the environment turned swampy. In Medora, we will be digging in Sentinel Butte Formation rocks, 55-60 million years old. This site is rich in a variety of swamp denizens, including crocodiles, giant salamanders, fish, champsosaurs, clams, snails, and more. The rugged badlands in the nearby Theodore Roosevelt National Park may also be a draw for those not interested in digging in the dirt.

Daily registration cost will be $25 per person. Registration starts Saturday, February 2nd, 2019 at 10:00 AM (Central Time). To register visit 2019ndgspaleodigs.eventbrite.com
