Sign up for dinosaur dig!


Interested in experiencing a dinosaur dig and adding to the Earth’s fossil record of 66 million years ago? Look no further. Here is the opportunity for you!

Dr. Lee Beatty, WSU, geoscience, in cooperation with Hell Creek Fossils helps staff and sponsor week-long educational programs and hands-on dinosaur digs from July 5 to August 2, 2020, for high school and college students and the general public in the Badlands of Western North Dakota (near Marmarth, N.D.). The field adventure includes an orientation to the site, learning excavation techniques and fossil preparation, along with ample time to engage in uncovering dinosaur remains that become part of the scientific collection. Evening lectures and local museum tours may also be scheduled.

Housing (spacious, two-person field tents with floors, cots), all meals, restrooms (with showers), electricity, and transportation to the dig sites are provided. Campers and RVs are welcome. Airport pickup is possible at an additional cost. Please contact and see for full details about participating in the dig, registering, fees and the consent form.
