Fossil Point

Join BLM regional paleontologist Greg McDonald on an exploration of Fossil Point, a colorful Jurassic fossil bed located 12.6 miles south of Green River. Greg will help us identify fossil bearing sites, explain fossil and mineral collecting rules on public lands, and help us envision what this place may have looked like 145 million years ago.

Copper Ridge Dinosaur Tracks

Join BLM regional paleontologist ReBecca Hunt-Foster on an exploration of the Copper Ridge Dinosaur Tracksite located 30 miles south of Green River. The Copper Ridge site features the tracks of a long-necked, plant eating sauropod dinosaur, and four three-toed dinosaurs preserved for 150 million years.
