Camarasaurus, Barosaurus, Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Allosaurus, Coelurosaurus, Othnelia and Drinker—these are among the fossils The Black Hills Institute has collected in 10 seasons at the Waugh Quarry.
The Waugh Quarry site is in the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation—a real “Jurassic Park.” The Houston Museum of Natural Science is honored that the Black Hills Institute has offered to host our group for a trip of a lifetime—participating in a professional dinosaur excavation at an iconic dig site—with the legendary paleontologist Peter Larson as our expedition leader.
As part of the excavation team, you will spend four full days with HMNS and the Black Hills Institute at Waugh Quarry, a private site in Hulett, Wyoming near Devil’s Tower National Monument. Everyone will be able to dig for and expose dinosaur bones.
