About Bonebed 30 - 1 Day Guided Excavation

Interpretive programs begin on the May long weekend and run until mid-October.  Specific dates/times for 2015 guided hikes, tours and other public programs will be available in February.  Please check back for details then. 


This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in a fully authentic dinosaur dig. With an experienced paleontological technician as your guide, you'll learn the techniques of excavating dinosaurs.  You'll work in a team to uncover fossils never before seen by human eyes. The day includes an orientation to the park and the research project, working in a real quarry, and hiking and prospecting for new fossil finds. Your work will contribute to research going on at the Royal Tyrrell Museum. 


Lunch is provided during this 7-hour program. Notes
