Dig for dinosaurs and search for new bones and tracks in the colorful, 150-million-year-old badlands of the Morrison Formation.
This year our expedition program has expanded! We now offer half-day digs as well as one-day digs at sites in western Colorado. To our multi-day expeditions we added a new three-day experience (with a raft trip!) in addition to the five-day expedition that ventures into eastern Utah. Choose whichever best suits your interest.
Half-Day and One-Day Digs
For the half-day and one-day digs in western Colorado, we provide transportation between Dinosaur Journey Museum in Fruita and the quarry, as well as field instruction. The one-day dig also includes lunch and water/Gatorade and a tour of Dinosaur Journey Paleo lab by a professional paleontologist.
The three-day expedition includes transportation from Dinosaur Journey, lunches, one dinner, raft trip, tours and instruction. The five-day Utah expedition includes transportation from Grand Junction to Moab and the sites in Utah, lunch and water/Gatorade each day, five nights lodging (two in Grand Junction and three in Moab), field instruction, tours by a professional paleontologist and two dinners.
