Mystery at the Dinosaur Quarry Attracts New Sleuths.

Mystery at the Dinosaur Quarry Attracts New Sleuths.

Why are there so many dinosaurs at the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry, and how did they get there? These questions have been puzzling scientists for years at the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry National Natural Landmark where the densest concentration of Jurassic dinosaur bones in the world is found.

This spring, a group of paleontologists are working to come up with answers. Dr. Joseph Peterson of the University of Wisconsin/Oshkosh will be leading a crew of students to the quarry May 17-23. They will examine the local geology closely to establish an idea of what the world looked like 147 million years ago here in what is now central Utah. Dr. Peterson and his crew of students will resume excavations into this mysterious bone bed. Come join the scientists during the weekend of May 18-20 where the public will have the opportunity to see paleontology in action. Excavations will be occurring and the students will be there to answer questions about their research.

For more information on this unique opportunity, contact Michael Leschin (435) 636-3619.
