Dinosaurs in North Dakota

11 Mar

There are some pretty wild ways to explore Jurassic history in North Dakota.  Attractions like the Heritage Center in Bismarck and the Dakota Dinosaur Museum in Dickinson have excellent exhibits with information about fossils found in North Dakota and the region.  An extremely unique mummified fossil, known as Dakota, is returning to the Heritage Center this spring – after being on-loan to a museum in Japan.

The theatrical event Walking With Dinosaurs will take place April 13 & 14 in Bismarck and April 16, 17 & 18 in Fargo.  Watch them walk.  Hear the roar.  Be there as they battle for survival and supremacy.

Also announced are the dates for the 2010 Fossil Digs – as coordinated by the North Dakota Geological Survey.  Literally get your hands dirty and discover history beneath the soil.  Dates for the digs are as follows:

  • June 14-18 – Whiskey Creek (near Buffalo Gap)
  • June 21-27 – Medora
  • August 1-7 – Marmarth
  • August 7-14 – Rhame
