“unbelievable fossil site”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

If you love fossils you HAVE to go here, especially to go to the quarry with a guide and dig your very own Green River fish fossils that are in unbelievable condition and abundance. This is a can't miss with kids and teens. I have recommended it to many and all have loved it. Well worth the drive and the nominal fee.

“WAY COOL... WAY COOL...WAY COOL...”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

Soooo, worth the time and the travel to get there and the cost. I agreed to go with my discovery/play in the dirt minded husband just to be a good wife. "I L O V E D IT"
It is a great activity for anyone that does not have mobility limitations. I was so caught up in the dig I forget to capture it on our camcorder.
Watch out for the pesky horseflies and they do bite even through cloth. You may want to spray yourself with bug spray. And wear sunscreen.
Staff is very nice and knows their stuff. I am excited about sharing our fossil discovery (we got some good ones) with family and the children in my Head Start classroom.
