"This is the fifth summer Burpee Museum staffers have worked the site, a preserved river channel with Jurassic period items dating to about 150 million years ago. Paleontologists have uncovered long-necked sauropods, carnivorous dinosaurs and a possible herbivorous stegosaurus. The quarry also contains other multiple dinosaur skeletons, animal burrows and petrified trees."
