Team: South

The Big Boneyard
Team South takes a detour out of the forest and mountains today to explore the Cleveland Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry on BLM lands near Price. This quarry contains one of the world`s most impressive collections of dinosaur bones and fossils from the Jurassic Morrison Formation. Over 18,000 bones from at least 70 different prehistoric critters have been excavated. These bones have been reassembled and displayed in museums throughout the world. There is a self guided nature walk, and the visitor center is staffed by the Prehistoric Museum of the College of Eastern Utah. As the Utah State archeologist once exclaimed, "This place is fossiliferous!"
