Bonebed 30 – 1 Day Guided Excavation
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in a fully authentic dinosaur dig. With an experienced palaeontological technician as your guide, you’ll learn the techniques of excavating dinosaurs. You will 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 by the Royal Tyrrell Museum at the park.
