Hanksville-Burpee Dinosaur Quarry Tour

Join paleontologist Jim Kirkland on a tour of one of Utah’s most spectacular dinosaur bone sites – the Hanksville-Burpee Dinosaur Quarry. The quarry is an ancient braided-river channel with isolated dinosaur bones and many relatively intact skeletons shallowly buried there. Five species of dinosaur tentatively identified in the field include a diversity of long-necked sauropods (Apatosaurus, Diplodocus, Camarasaurus, and perhaps Brachiosaurus) and Utah’s State Fossil, the carnivorous Allosaurus.
