You’ll Love Digging For Fossils At This Unique Historic Site In Wyoming

Millions of years ago, Wyoming was underwater! Near the Green River Formation, there are still thousands and thousands of fossils buried into the rock. One spot near Kemmerer offers public fossil digs, so you can take a piece of history home with you.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The Fossil Safari is the most family-friendly dig in the state, but if you’re looking for a more intense day out in the field, join the Wyoming Dinosaur Center in Thermopolis for a full day dig at an active paleontology site. Read more about that adventure here!
