Geological Survey Offers Fossil Digs

Posted: Updated:

The state geological survey has a way for you to play paleontologist for the day.

This summer, five sites across the state will host people of all ages to participate in fossil digs.

From Medora to Whiskey Creek, there are digs for all skill levels, and there are also family days for kids 8 and up.

"At the Pembina Gorge site we found a partial skeleton of a mosasaur which is a large marine reptile that grew to probably 30 feet long. We have found some of the fossils of we're going back to the Pembina Gorge Site to find more of that animal," says paleontologist John Hoganson.

Hoganson says the sites have been successful in the past, and that they hope to add to the collection of fossils that will be on display in the Heritage center.
